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: Formation and suppression of acoustic memories during human sleep
Listeners may learn novel sensory informations during sleep but the question of how sleep stages and their associated rhythms modulate environmental learning remains unanswered. ENP team leader Sid Kouider and his coll. now demonstrate that the formation and suppression of new memories can take place during sleep.
Research Highlight: A V0 core neuronal circuit for inspiration
Breathing involves permanent rhythmic contractions of skeletal muscles in a bilaterally synchronized manner. The executive control of respiration relies on sets of brainstem interneurons assembled into an ordered synaptic network: the respiratory central pattern generator (CPG). The ENP group leader Gilles Fortin and coll. investigate the relationship of defined neuronal subtypes to the organization of the respiratory CPG.
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.
