~Neuronal Circuits and Intelligence~

This is a workshop focusing on neuronal circuits, information processing, and neurointelligence. The development of new methods has accellerated our understanding of specific neuronal circuits in the brain. This workshop will bring together researchers working on different aspects of neuronal circuits to exchange methodological know-how, to generalize our knowledge from specific circuits and processes, to discuss how to interpret existing knowledge in the context of intelligence and cognition, and explore implications for cognitive disorders and mental unhealth.
Thanks to support from the UTokyo Strategic Partnerships Program, IRCN welcomes eminent scientists from Stockholm and seeks opportunities for future collaboration.
