The Brain Conferences: The Neurobiology of Sleep & Circadian Rhythm

Posted on Jul 25, 2015 1:04:00 AM

Conference - Copenhagen, Denmark
Sleep and circadian rhythms regulate all aspects of brain function. Co-chaired by Russell Foster (University of Oxford, UK) and Joseph Takahashi (University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre, USA), the focus of this Brain Conference will be on the molecular, cellular and neural networks that underlie the generation and regulation of sleep and circadian rhythms; by what means these biological processes interact and influence normal brain function and behaviour; and how these systems influence the development and state of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
Topics for the conference will include: the neural mechanisms of sleep, arousal states and sleep homeostasis; the critical role of sleep for brain and body physiology including memory consolidation, immune responses and energy homeostasis; the molecular and cellular mechanisms of circadian rhythm generation; the regulation of sleep and circadian rhythms by light; the consequences of the 24/7 society on sleep and health; and the brain mechanisms underlying sleep and circadian rhythm disruption in neurodegenerative and psychiatric illnesses.
The Brain Conferences establish a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe. Organised by FENS in collaboration with The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key broadly defined areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.
Organization: FENS - Federation of European Neuroscience Societies
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 - Wed, Oct 14, 2015
