Registration for next year’s European Neuroscience Conference by/for Doctoral Students ENCODS 2018

ENCODS is a conference for PhD students at all stages of their PhD. Great communications skills are a vital part of disseminating science, which is why the program includes workshops evolving subjects like scientific writing and presentation skills. ENCODS is a great way for young scientists to interact with each other and with senior scientists in a different setting than usual, and serves as the optimal platform for the initiation of important collaborations across borders. At ENCODS, we believe that open-minded interaction is key to moving the field forward. We encourage all PhD students with an interest for Neuroscience to visit encods.eu to read more about the conference and apply for the 2018 ENCODS.

ENCODS 2018 will take place in Berlin, Germany July 5-6 2018.

LA COMPRÉHENSION DU CERVEAU est l’un des grands enjeux du 21ème siècle. Les processus physiologiques qui sous-tendent des activités aussi diverses que l’apprentissage, la perception, la vigilance, la résistance au stress, la prise de décision ou encore l’interaction homme-machine, commencent à être de mieux en mieux connus des chercheurs en neurosciences. Les applications sont nombreuses, aussi bien dans la vie de tous les jours que dans le domaine des pathologies neuropsychiatriques.

Pour accélérer les progrès dans ces domaines et renforcer l’excellence scientifique en France, l'ENP repère et attirer dès aujourd’hui ceux qui feront la recherche de demain.



RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT : Microbiome Influences Prenatal and Adult Microglia in a Sex-Specific Manner
ENP team leader Sonia GAREL and coll. using extensive experimental methods for evaluating for instance gene expression level, chromatin accessibility or cellular density now reveal that microglia exhibit sex- and age-dependent modifications in response to the microbiome in mice.
RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: TEMPORALLY PRECISE SINGLE-CELL-RESOLUTION OPTOGENETICS
Team leader Valentina Emiliani and coll in collaboration with Ed Boyden at MIT (Cambridge, USA) now devised a way to control single-neuron by optogenetics. Authors using a light-sensitive opsine protein targeted to neuronal bodies (soma-targeted) developed by Ed Boyden and taking advantage of the patterned 2-photon holographic illumination for optogenetics applications developed by the highly skilled expertise of the Emiliani’s team show exquisite figures and recordings of single synaptic response to stimulation paving therefore the way for a future clear neuronal connectivity map.
