Free to attend, digital meeting - October 8, 2020
This digital event reflects the broad spectrum of exciting developments in the field of early brain development and adult brain repair. We start out by discussing experimental systems that recapitulate the molecular processes leading to patterning of the developing human brain. Next, we learn about the intricate interactions between radial glia and young neurons that may go awry causing cortical malformations. Moving from the dish to in vivo, we will be introduced to xenotransplant models to study the development and plasticity of human neurons in vivo and how this can be employed to learn about neurodevelopmental disorders. Finally, we will discuss innovative strategies for brain repair based on glia-to-neuron conversion in the context of temporal lobe epilepsy. All in all, much more than a teaser for the in-person Building and Repairing the Brain conference on October 6-8, 2021 in Dresden, Germany. Stay tuned!
Participation is free, however, registration is required.
