Registration Deadline: 28 Mar 2022
The Symposium aims at bringing together neuroscientists from the Human Brain Project and invited guests to present their latest achievements in understanding cortical circuits at various scales, including the emergence of consciousness. The involvement of neuronal and neuroglial cells in brain functioning, memory, learning, cognition and consciousness in health and disease will be discussed from the experimental and theoretical perspective.
The Symposium will also address neuroethics and neurophilosophy with links to society in a public key note, followed by a panel discussion by experts. Talks will be recorded and later put online.
It will also offer a hands-on session on The Virtual Brain, the platform of EBRAINS for constructing and simulating personalised brain network models. EBRAINS is the European research infrastructure for gathering, processing and simulating brain data.
