Join the Minds of Janelia - Learning & Memory: A Synthesis of Bees & Flies

Posted on Sep 11, 2014 3:29:00 AM


Conference - Ashburn, VA, United States

Associative learning and memory are fundamental capacities of all animals with a nervous system. Invertebrates have been pivotal to the understanding of learning and memory at the behavioral, cellular and molecular level. Honeybees and fruit flies, in particular, have paved the way to the dissection of mechanisms underlying different forms of learning and memory. The identification of memory traces at various levels, including brain structures such as antennal lobes, mushroom bodies and extrinsic mushroom-body neurons, suggests a system consolidation of memories and requires focus at the network level. Given these recent significant advancements, we look forward to vigorous discussion by experts from around the world on the dynamic exchange and cross talk between structures and circuits during memory formation and retrieval.
