Glia-Neuron Interactions in Developing Circuits 2018 is a one-day Symposium

about how glia & neurons functionally cooperate to develop nervous system circuits.

The goal of this symposium is to provide a setting for exchange of ideas and results

at the interface of the fields of nervous system development and glial biology.

It will be held on September 25th , 2018 at The Rockefeller University in New York .

Scientific Topics

Focus will be at neuron and glia actions and interactions in

circuit patterning

cell fate specification

neuronal migration

axon guidance


circuit aging
