1.Gordon Research Conference — Neurotrophic Factors 2015
 Dates 31 May 2015 → 05 Jun 2015
[ID=655277] Go to top of page
 LocationNewport, United States
 Abstract Neurotrophic factors play essential roles in the developing and mature nervous system. While Nerve growth factor (NGF) was the first neurotrophic factor when it was identified more than 50 years ago, a large set of related and unrelated extracellular proteins are now known to exert neurotrophic effects in the developing and mature nervous system. The roles of neurotrophic factors include regulation of cell proliferation, survival, differentiation, migration, axon and dendrite growth, synaptic plasticity and the interactions of neuronal and glial cells. As a result, neurotrophic factors affect complex behaviors including feeding, anxiety, depression and learning, and aberrations in the activities of neurotrophic factors have been implicated in multiple neurologic and psychiatric disorders. The Neurotrophic Factors Gordon Conference provides a great opportunity to learn of recent advances in this broad field, and enhances collaborations among scientists and students. The meeting will feature work on diverse neurotrophic factors and their roles in neurogenesis, neuronal migration, survival, plasticity, behavior and diseases, including disorders of neural development such as autism and epilepsy and degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and peripheral neuropathies. Emphasis will be placed on the most recent developments.

2.Gordon Research Conference — Excitatory Synapses & Brain Function 2015
 Dates 07 Jun 2015 → 12 Jun 2015
[ID=655270] Go to top of page
 LocationNewport, United States
 Abstract Perhaps no other structure is more fundamental to our understanding of the brain than the synapse. In the central nervous system, excitatory synapses represent the primary source of information communication between neurons, whether for local interactions within circuits or for linking discrete regions of the brain. One of the most extraordinary properties of excitatory synapses is the ability to under activity-dependent long-lasting changes in synaptic strength, providing the most compelling cellular model for learning and memory. Synapses also serve as the site of action for many commonly prescribed medications and synaptic disruption contributes to many neurological and psychiatric disorders. These include schizophrenia, autism, depression, substance abuse and addiction, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury, stroke and epilepsy. In some cases, synaptic dysfunction is causal in disease, whereas in other cases it represents the downstream sequelae of one or more underlying molecular defects. In either case, a fundamental understanding of the formation, structure, molecular organization, signaling function, and plasticity of synapses is essential to achieving progress in lessening the burden of human neurological disease and for predicting and improving mental health.

4.Gordon Research Conference — Parkinson's Disease: Emerging Research in the Etiology and Pathogenesis of a Complex Disease 2015
 Dates 28 Jun 2015 → 03 Jul 2015
[ID=655651] Go to top of page
 LocationNew London, United States
 Abstract Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common motor disorder. Over the past fifteen years, the discovery of disease-causing mutations in a growing number of genes has accelerated the pace of our understanding of disease mechanisms. Simultaneous discoveries in cell biology and immunological processes are rapidly providing insights into the processes that lead to this disease. This creates an exciting series of challenges and opportunities to be addressed by discussion and exchange of ideas. There has to our knowledge never been a basic research conference devoted to Parkinson’s, and this conference will bring together investigators with diverse scientific backgrounds who share an interest in the cellular mechanisms that produce PD and its related disorders. The specific content of the Conference will evolve as our understanding of PD evolves. For the first Conference, topics will include: The normal function of PD-related genes; The cellular response to toxic protein aggregates; Endoplasmic reticulum stress; Proteasomal and autophagic processes; Neuroimmune pathways; and Prion-like aggregate pathogenesis.

6.Gordon Research Conference — Neural Crest & Cranial Placodes 2015
 Dates 19 Jul 2015 → 24 Jul 2015
[ID=655598] Go to top of page
 LocationWaltham, United States
 Abstract Neural crest cells and cranial sensory placodes are of central importance to the development and evolution of vertebrates, and are also of high clinical significance. This conference is designed to facilitate shared insights among attendees and fuel further advances in our understanding of the mechanisms governing the formation, behavior and differentiation of these two cell populations, as well as to catalyze the application of this knowledge to the field of regenerative medicine. The central goals of the conference are to accelerate the exchange of information across different model systems, to promote technological innovations in the field, and to further a genome and proteome scale understanding of the mechanisms that govern the development of neural crest cells and cranial sensory placodes. Both neural crest cells and cranial placode cells make extensive contributions to embryonic structures, and defects in their development underlie a broad range of congenital disorders. Neural crest cells display stem cell attributes, and neural crest-derived cells persist as stem cells into adulthood; studies of these cells provide broad insights into stem cell biology. Moreover, neural crest cells undergo migratory and invasive behavior driven by core EMT regulatory factors, and understanding how their behavior is regulated provides insights into the related invasive behavior of metastatic tumor cells. Cranial placode cells play important roles in the development of cranial sensory structures; mutations in genes that regulate their development lead to human syndromes with severe sensory deficits and dysregulated cell cycle control in numerous cancers. The conference will bring together a diverse group of scientists in a collegial atmosphere that fosters substantive discussions and promotes collaborative interactions between basic and clinical scientists in this important area of biomedical research.

7.Gordon Research Conference — Amygdala in Health and Disease 2015
 Dates 02 Aug 2015 → 07 Aug 2015
[ID=648355] Go to top of page
 LocationEaston, United States
 Abstract The amygdala, a temporal lobe structure that forms part of the limbic system, plays a key role in emotional processing. Its relevance to fear and anxiety in animals has been well known since the classic experiments of Kluver and Bucy, who made mid-temporal lesions in monkeys and found profound effects on the emotional and social behaviour of these animals. Focus on studies of the amygdala expanded greatly when its role in fear conditioning was established. Fear conditioning is a simple Pavlovian conditioning task in which a neutral stimulus is contingently paired with an aversive stimulus. The simple nature of this learning task, and the readily measured physiological changes that accompany it, have made the study of fear conditioning a very attractive target for the study of learning and memory consolidation. As the neural circuitry that underlies fear conditioning is simple and appears to be preserved between species, it presents an accessible model for the study of learning and memory formation in the mammalian nervous system. Because of the physiological similarities between animal and human fear, fear conditioning is seen as relevant to the genesis of anxiety disorders in humans. Moreover, recent research indicates that changes in amygdala function may contribute more generally to pathological forms of emotional learning such as drug addiction. Functional magnetic resonance imaging in humans has clearly established the role of the amygdala in emotional processing. Interest in amygdala function has therefore attracted growing interest in both animal and human experiments using both simple behavioural tests and functional imaging. This Conference focuses on research investigating the role of the amygdala in the formation of emotional memories, both normal and pathological.

[ID=716660] Go to top of page
 LocationAlbuquerque, NM, United States
 Abstract The course is designed for fMRI researchers who range from beginning to intermediate skill levels. It will provide those who are just getting started with fMRI a comprehensive set of tools and software to get started with your own studies, and those who are more advanced with a custom code and supplements to standard analyses developed by the instructors. We cover Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM8), independent component analyses (ICA) of fMRI data, mediation analysis of fMRI, and statistical nonparametric mapping (SnPM). We also provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of experimental design, image acquisition, image preprocessing, and analysis using the general linear model and ICA.The course is unique in that it pairs interactive lectures with hands-on demonstrations and work-through sessions. Each student works on their own laptop. Software will be installed on each student's laptop during the beginning of the course, including Matlab (a trial version), SPM8, the Group ICA of fMRI Toolbox (GIFT), and related SPM toolboxes, including statistical nonparametric mapping (SnPM) and the multi-level mediation fMRI toolbox (M3). In addition, alongside the lectures, participants will be trained to analyze example fMRI data on their laptops using these tools. The course will be small and interactive, with many opportunities to work closely with the faculty. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis; we apologize in advance if we cannot accommodate all who wish to attend, but we will admit as many people as possible given the interactive nature of the course.
