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: Light controls cerebral blood flow in naive animals
Photoactivation of specific populations of cells via a combination of Optogenetics and fMRI is currently used to generate brain maps of connectivity and function. Group leader Serge Charpak and coll. now thoroughly examined in vivo the potential side effects of light on cerebral blood flow (CBF) in anesthetized naive mice using 2-photon laser scanning microscopy and ultrafast functional ultrasound.
Medicine Nobel Prize 2017 goes to Circadian Clock Specialists
The Nobel prize 2017 for physiology or medicine has been awarded to three neurogeneticists who uncovered the mechanisms of the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster.
Research Highlight: Floor-plate-derived netrin-1 is dispensable for commissural axon guidance
The prevailing model of axon guidance relies on chemotactic cues that permit or prevent axon growth. The extra cellular matrix protein Netrin-1 expressed by Floor Plate (FP) cells in the CNS midline is indeed believed to attract commissural axons to the midline : among other supporting data, commissural axons fail to cross the FP in Netrin-1 loss of function in the mouse.
