Brain interfaces - bridging basic and translational neuroscience

The Passwell symposium in translational neuroscience will host speakers from the basic and clinical research domains who share an interest in unraveling the neural circuit dysfunctions underlying neurological and psychiatric disorders. The talks will focus on circuit-level understanding of psychiatric disorders and on new technologies that can both facilitate a deeper understanding of psychiatric illness and potentially lead to the development of novel treatments.
