Proteins and Circuits in Memory (afholdt)

Proteins and Circuits in Memory, 5-7 March 2019

Despite huge efforts and technical advances in neuroscience, the molecular mechanisms underlying memory formation, storage, and recall are still far from understood. At this meeting, world-leading researchers within the field are invited to present their latest research and the status of current knowledge, identify key scientific questions, and discuss new directions of memory research.
Junior researchers are strongly encouraged to participate, as this meeting presents a unique opportunity to discuss their projects with experts within the field and establish valuable contacts.
