Keystone Symposia: Neurogenesis during Development and in the Adult Brain
ID
828712
Dates
08 Jan 2017 - 12 Jan 2017
Location
Olympic Valley, United States
Abstract
Scholarship& Discounted Abstract Deadline: Sep 14, 2016; Abstract Deadline: Oct 10, 2016; Discounted Registration Deadline: Nov 9, 2016

The complexity of the brain, with thousands of neuronal types, permits the development of sophisticated cognitive and behavioral repertoires. Neurogenesis, the fundamental phenomenon that creates the brain, starts early during development and continues in the adult life, shaping our networks in close association with the environment. This unique meeting will explore neurogenesis from different perspectives, bringing new insights about the fundamental mechanisms that control normal brain development and that contribute to disease situations when this process is altered. It should bring together scientists working on different aspects of neurogenesis to exchange ideas and facilitate novel collaborative projects. The pairing of the meeting will with a stem cell meeting will enhance the opportunity for interactions among researchers from different fields pursuing similar questions. This meeting is being held jointly with

Keystone Symposia - Connectomics
ID
825240
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
The emerging field of connectomics comprises extensive efforts to map patterns of brain connectivity, to represent these patterns with the tools of network science, and to explore the relation of brain connectivity and dynamics to behavior and cognition. Importantly, these efforts span multiple scales of brain organization, from synaptic connectivity among individual neurons, to comprehensive maps of circuits, neuronal populations, and projections among brain regions. An integrative multi-scale framework for mapping, analyzing and modeling connectome data sets is lacking. This Keystone Symposia meeting aims to narrow this important gap, by: 1) Fostering scientific exchange among otherwise siloed researchers studying connectomes in different organisms at different scales with different measurement techniques; 2) Promoting approaches that apply across scales, for example by leveraging the tools of network science; 3) Emphasizing the need to move beyond descriptive accounts of connectomes, to model-based prediction and control; 4) Providing a unique opportunity for pre- and postdoctoral trainees to engage with connectomics leaders and present their work. Anticipated outcomes include a multi-scale framework for description, prediction and control of connectomes; innovative computational methods for statistical analysis and modeling of connectome data sets; and new collaborations among participating researchers and trainees. The meeting will have transformative impact by creating new relationships among investigators and by seeding a new integrative research agenda centered on the structure and dynamics of brain connectivity.

Keystone Symposia - Synapses and Circuits: Formation, Function, and Dysfunction
ID
825401
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
A fundamental goal of neuroscience is to understand the molecular, cellular and activity-based mechanisms that control the formation and maintenance of neural circuits and determine how these mechanisms become compromised in neurodevelopmental, psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. Over the past four decades, molecular neuroscientists have identified key molecules and mechanisms that underlie synapse development, activity and stability. Meanwhile, the identification and characterization of different cell types has been transformed by single cell profiling techniques and study of neuronal circuits has been revolutionized by new optical methods to visualize, map and control circuits in living animals. Finally, there has been an explosion in the ability to identify genes associated with neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. Increasingly sophisticated animal models are proving useful to understand how dysfunction of affected genes and proteins contributes to disease pathology. Although researchers in all of these disciplines are studying the same fundamental issues, no small highly interactive “Keystone-style” meetings bring these three groups together in the same room. In the belief that mutually beneficial insights will emerge from discussing each other’s work, this symposium will bring together leaders working on neuronal development, synapse development and plasticity, circuit structure and function, and the study of brain disease.

Keystone Symposia - Neuroinflammation: Concepts, Characteristics, Consequences
ID
825496
Dates
19 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Location
Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract
Scientific Organizers: Richard M. Ransohoff, Christopher K. Glass and V. Hugh Perry

Neuroinflammation comprises the interaction of two formidably complex organ systems. Two considerations motivate this meeting: first that the communities of neuroscientists and immunologists urgently need to formulate and deploy a joint set of concepts to promote mechanistic progress (hence a meeting of the two), and second that neuroinflammation, broadly conceived, operates throughout life from embryogenesis through old age with consequences bearing on the most serious health concerns ranging from autism and schizophrenia to dementia. What’s needed in this field (for example) is for immunologists to acquire a working knowledge of neuroscience (e.g., electrophysiology, neurotransmitters, behavior) and for neuroscientists to become comfortable with the cells, proteins and animating concepts of contemporary immunology. The optimal venue for such exchange lies in the presentation of compelling multidisciplinary research to a joint audience in the Keystone Symposia format. As such, this meeting aims to: 1) Integrate the intrinsic “immune” elements of the CNS (microglia, complement, certain chemokines) into a broader scheme of neurodevelopment and to indicate where aberrant function of these elements might conduce to neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism; 2) Characterize the neuroinflammatory processes which typify aging and integrate this temporal dynamic into the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disease; and 3) Share model systems (particularly invertebrate) and technical innovations which can be particularly powerful for generating mechanistic insights into neuroinflammatory processes.
