FENS Friday webinars are back in September!

Registration for the FENS Friday webinar on “Neuroanatomical tract-tracing methods: classic techniques currently going viral” is now open. 

Most of our current understanding of the complexity of circuits underlying brain function and dysfunction is based on neuroanatomical tracing techniques. In the last decades, we have witnessed the arrival of new sophisticated tools for tract-tracing. These news tools have enriched and almost fulfilled any experimental demand. In particular, the use of modified viruses as delivery vehicles for genetic material has pushed the field forward into a new neuroanatomical era. 

This FENS Friday webinar will provide a landscape perspective overclassical and modern tools for tract-tracing purposes. The goal is to provide young trainees with the best tips, ideas and background information required for selecting the neuroanatomical tracer or the best combination for a given experimental paradigm.
