From Maps to Circuits: Models and Mechanisms for Generating Neural Connections

7th-9th December 2015, Strasbourg France


Michael Reber, Michael Crair, Stephen Eglen, David Feldheim.

Aim of the meeting

Understanding the development of the nervous system is a key challenge that has been approached by both experimental and theoretical neuroscientists. In recent years there has been a gradual move towards the two groups working more with each other. The idea of this workshop is to bring key people together who have shown an interest at combining theoretical and experimental techniques to discuss current problems in neuronal development, and plan future collaborative efforts.

Time at the end of each day of the workshop will be devoted to a group discussion about questions that have been raised during the day to identify possible research directions and people willing to pursue them.

This meeting follows on from our first meeting on this theme held in Edinburgh, July 2014 (details at
