Barrels and beyond 2018

This ‘Barrels and beyond 2018‘ meeting in Göttingen in May 2018 is organized to bring together leaders in the field, to reflect the state of current knowledge and to develop further methods and concepts that will enable to understand the cellular mechanisms of sensory perception, decision making and goal-directed behavior at a mechanistic, circuit-based level.

Location: Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Göttingen, Herrmann-Rein-Str. 3
Confirmed Speakers: Alison Barth, Michael Brecht, Solange Brown, Randy Bruno, Christiaan de Kock, Kenneth Harris, Fritjof Helmchen, Jean-Sebastien Jouhanneau, Thomas Klausberger, Siegrid Löwel, Rebecca Mease, Nathalie Rochefort, Massimo Scanziani, Cornelius Schwarz, Joshua Trachtenberg, Jianing Yu.

Flying Senses Symposium

The ‘Flying Senses‘ Symposium in Göttingen in October 2018 will highlight recent advances in the understanding of the processing of sensory information, using the genetic model organism Drosophila.
It will bring together people working on different sensory modalities, including vision, olfaction, hearing and mechanosensation, and aim to discuss the current status of research and work out fundamental principles of sensory processing. Using flies as a system allows to shed light on the molecular and cellular properties, neurophysiological features, and how these link to circuit function and behavior, allowing for an integrated view on sensory processing.
The conference is hosted jointly by the Collaborative Research Center 889 and the European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen.

Location: Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Göttingen, Herrmann-Rein-Str. 3
Confirmed Speakers: Jörg Albert, Jan Clemens, Claude Desplan, Bertram Gerber, Martin Göpfert, Ilona Grundwald-Kadow, Carlotta Martelli, Alex Mauss, Michael Reiser, Dierck Reiff, Silke Sachse.
Website and registration: www.flyingsenses2018.uni-goettingen.de
Organizers: Marion Silies and André Fiala
