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

Homology and Convergence In Nervous System Evolution Conference

Posted on Feb 1, 2015 5:53:00 AM

Conference - Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom
Today's many different nervous systems illustrate a major conundrum in evolutionary theory: do neurons and brains share common decent (homology) or do they derive from independent (homoplasic) origins?
The aim of this meeting is to clarify and discuss evidence for homologous brain segments and circuits across phyla, as well as competing evidence for and against independent origins of nervous systems.
Wed, Mar 11, 2015 - Thu, Mar 12, 2015
The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall
Newport Pagnell, United Kingdom
