Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Genetic Manipulation of Neuronal Activity III

Genetic Manipulation of Neuronal Activity III

Conference - Ashburn, VA, United States

This conference was first held at Janelia in 2008, and again in 2010.  Presentations will highlight recent advances in the development of new genetic reagents for the exogenous control of neural circuit activity, including naturally evolved light-gated ion channels and pumps, mutagenized temperature-sensitive synaptic transmission components, rationally designed photo-switches, and "orthogonal" drug/receptor pairs, among others.  We are bringing together leaders in the field to review progress in the design and use of current tools and, more importantly, to discuss the development of novel tools and their potential applications.
