The Brain's Networks

Gothenburg, September 18-20, 2015

This meeting, which is supported by the Swedish Research Council, will give a snapshot of the current state of knowledge about the brain’s networks through perspectives from neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology, structural MRI, functional brain imaging, advanced data analysis and mathematical modelling of neural networks. It will feature discussions between the speakers, and between the speakers and the audience, on how to integrate the research from these different fields. The last half day will be wholly devoted to such discussions.

The meeting will facilitate an interdisciplinary dialogue to further unify our knowledge about how the networks of advanced brains work. It aims to contribute to a better understanding of how interdisciplinary data and theoretical models can deepen our comprehension of brain mechanisms and the mental functions that they support. The conference is also meant to encourage a better coordination of ongoing and future research.

The conference is built around invited lectures but also contains a poster session with submitted contributions. All poster presenters will be given the opportunity to briefly present their poster orally at a special plenary session on the poster exhibition day.

The meeting welcomes researchers and research students in neuroscience, psychiatry, psychology, philosophy, and behavioural and neural modeling, as well as other participants with an interest in the brain’s networks.
