SYMPOSIA

Plenary: Towards a molecular logic of neural circuits (Thomas Südhof) 2017-09-21 - 09:00-10:00

Venue: Plenary Hall

Speaker: Thomas Südhof

Chair: Zoltán Nusser 

Wired to be human: unique features of brain development (Ivica Kostovic) 2017-09-21 - 11:00-13:00

Venue: Plenary Hall
Unique genetic, molecular, cellular and anatomical features that characterize development of complex connectivity of the human cortex, throughout fetal life, childhood, adolescence and young adulthood, encourage multidisciplinary effort, application of new technologies and sharing of data amongst the researchers.

Cognitive control and cognitive flexibility: From behavioral, systems and neuronal mechanisms to clinical implications (Ales Stuchlik) 2017-09-21 - 11:00-13:00
Venue: Conference Room F08
The symposium will provide in-depth examination of the physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms of cognitive control and flexibility, processes that are impaired in many neuropsychiatric disorders, that cannot be adequately treated, yet majorly determine patient´s daily functioning.

Binocular perception and its disorders (Péter Buzás & Gábor Jandó) 2017-09-21 - 11:00-13:00
Venue: Conference Room 103
The session guides the audience from our current understanding of the neural mechanisms of stereopsis through the developmental steps establishing binocular vision to some of the most recent clinical approaches to the treatment of amblyopia.

Network imaging in behaving animals – developing picture (Balázs Rózsa) 2017-09-21 - 15:30-17:30

Venue: Plenary Hall
In our symposium we bring together the best researchers in the field of large scale neural network imaging in behavioral context to present us the latest results and possibilities (recording methods, molecular markers, options of manipulating neural activity) of that rapidly evolving research area.

Neurobiology of Social Behavior (Árpád Dobolyi) 2017-09-21 - 15:30-17:30
Venue: Conference Room F08
The symposium will overview social behaviors in evolutionary perspective. Then, brain circuitry and systems biological results responsible for parental care in rodents will be presented. Finally, specific neuropeptide systems involved in anxiety and consolation behaviours, and their therapeutic use in psychopathologies, such as autism will be discussed.

Invertebrate Neurobiology: how evolution shapes neuronal circuits (Hans- Joachim Pflüger) 2017-09-21 - 15:30-17:30
Venue: Conference Room 103
This session will introduce some important invertebrate experimental organisms and consider aspects of evolution of the nervous system with respect to neuronal networks underlying behaviour.

Invertebrate models in studying neuronal effects of environmental stimuli (satellite symposium by ISIN: International Society for Invertebrate Neuroscience) 2017-09-21 - 13:00-15:30

Venue: Plenary Hall

This satellite symposium will present some invertebrate models (molluscs, insects) where neuronal effects of various environmental stimuli (e.g. odors, light, alelochemicals, pharmaceutical contaminants) could be examined at cellular and/or system levels. Organized by the International Society for Invertebrate Neuroscience.

Borderline Neuroscience Exhibition 2017-09-21 - 08:00-19:00

Venue: Other Location

A new optional course was introduced in the medical curriculum on the diverse aspects of anatomy. The topics include interesting anatomy-related topics with many different fields of anatomy/neuroanatomy. Although this knowledge is not necessarily required for the medical curriculum, it might help the student to learn anatomy with more interest and enthusiasm. The course also gives an insight into different kinds of Anatomy curriculum, like what kind of Anatomy a massage therapist or a veterinary needs in comparison to medical students and also shows some other Anatomy teaching systems from different universities worldwide. We have made an exhibition of the works students sent, further popularizing the subject of anatomy.
