November 17-18, 2016
Venue: NSB Auditorium, University of California, San Diego, USA

Understanding behavior-related neuronal activity and how the underlying circuit functions and assembles is a central mission in contemporary neuroscience. In this two-day symposium, important topics in this field will be discussed by rising stars of the new generation who are investigating neural circuits with state-of-the-art techniques. A unique scope of this meeting is to facilitate interactions among young neuroscientists. For this purpose, we have intentionally invited relatively young but prominent PIs in this field. This symposium will be a satellite event of the Society for Neuroscience meeting, and open to any neuroscientists. A limited number of travel fellowships are also available. Young PIs and senior post-docs are particularly welcome to attend. Several slots for short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts.
