Brain states: transformation of neural circuit dynamics and functions
Attendance type(s): In Person
Event Dates: 19—20 Mar 2020
The brain state defines the execution of brain function. Brain states are associated with subcortical neuromodulatory activities and are altered in neuropsychiatric conditions. The dynamic nature of brain states and their transition have been recognized since early days of neurophysiology, yet recent technological developments including molecular genetics, cellular imaging, and large-scale recording have made it possible to assess the functional roles of brain states. Research from leading scientists in this field will be gathered at this meeting to highlight the latest understanding of state- dependent changes in brain states and discuss conceptual advancements in field.
