SALA DE PRENSA | EMBO WORKHOP: CORTICAL INTERNEURONS IN HEALTH AND DISEASE

EMBO Workhop: cortical interneurons in health and disease

The specific aim of this Workshop is to bring together world-class experts on very different aspects of the biology of cortical interneurons.  We anticipate that this meeting may contribute to bridging the gap between different fields, leading to a better understanding of cortical interneurons in health and disease.

To look at the program, please visit the EMBo website for the meeting:

The neural assembly underlying the formation of functional networks in the cerebral cortex constitutes one of the most complex biological systems.  Much of this complexity arises through the interaction of two distinct neuronal types, the glutamatergic projection neurons and gamma-aminobutyric containing (GABAergic) interneurons.  Although neglected for a long time, interneurons are now thought to play a major role in the function of the cerebral cortex.
