Royal Holloway, University of London: 12th and 13th April 2018

cerebellum

Registration is now closed. Please note that there will be NO ON-SITE REGISTRATION.

This meeting will bring together researchers and clinicians whose work focuses on the cerebellum. The programme includes a group of UK and international speakers who will discuss cutting edge advances and new thinking on cerebellar anatomy, molecular and cell biology, physiology, the cerebellar basis of behaviour, and clinical disorders of cerebellar origin.

Topics in fundamental neuroscience will include brain anatomy, genetics, development, motor control, plasticity mechanisms, learning and cognition. Clinical topics in psychiatry and neurology will include cerebellar links with autism, cerebellar ataxias, and cerebellar involvement in neurodegenerative disorders. They will span multiple levels of analysis, from molecular and cellular levels through to systems, behaviour and cognition. Speakers will discuss work based on a range of methodological approaches (including molecular methods, single cell recordings, human brain imaging, and animal models of cerebellar disease).

This is a small meeting in which the number of participants will be limited in order to facilitate focussed discussion. The meeting will take place on 12th and 13th April 2018, at Royal Holloway, University of London (UK) and is open to established scientists and clinicians, postdoctoral scientists, trainee clinicians, PhD and Masters students.

We are keen to support attendance by early career researchers with reduced registration fees and bursaries to help with travel and accommodation costs. We are grateful to Guarantors of Brain for funding to support this approach.

For enquiries, please contact the organisers (Prof. Narender Ramnani, Dr. Joshua Balsters or Dr. Claire O’Callaghan) on cerebellumUK2018@gmail.com.
