Abstract Guide

Agenda

The brain contains about 100 billion neurons, each directly communicating with up to tens of thousands of other nerve cells. It is an exceptionally complex organ that poses unique challenges for its study. Increasing our knowledge of the brain requires revolutionary and dynamic approaches and technologies along with interdisciplinary research and collaboration in the fields neuroscience, computational biology, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, mathematics, computer science, molecular biology, biomedical informatics, neurology, physics, pharmacology, and others.  This conference will explore some of the innovative research leading to understanding the brain’s fantastic complexity.

Confirmed speakers:

Eve Marder, Professor of Neuroscience, Brandeis University
Dan Yamins, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Computer Science,Stanford University
Benjamin R. Arenkiel, Associate Professor of Molecular & Human Genetics and Neuroscience, Baylor College of Medicine
Andreas Tolias, Associate Professor of Neuroscience, Baylor College of Medicine

Short talks by:
Daniel Gonzales, Predoctoral Student, Applied Physics/Electrical Engineering, Rice University
Madeline Farley, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Neurosurgery, Baylor College of Medicine
Doug Litwin , Predoctoral Student, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, UT Health Science Center at Houston
