Cortical Development Conference 2022

Neural Stem Cells to Neural Circuits

Date: May 29 - June 3, 2022
Location: Milazzo, Sicily, Italy

Organizers: G Fishell, AR Kriegstein, Z Molnár and F Vaccarino

Description: The focus of the meeting is the mammalian cerebral cortex development, from neural stem cells to circuits. Selected speakers from around the world will describe how advances in developmental neurobiology, stem cell biology, mathematical modeling, genetics and imaging offering new insights into the mechanisms controlling development and evolution of the cerebral cortex, as well as associated developmental abnormalities and clinical advances.
