2019-06-03 to 2019-06-07 Baikal Neuroscience Meeting 2019

The Baikal Neuroscience Meeting 2019 will take place on the Russian lake Baikal in Siberia from June 03 to June 07, 2019.
The major theme of the conference is “Cortical neuronal networks in health and disease”. The talks will cover several topics including the development of cortical networks, synaptic plasticity and synaptic function, the role glia in shaping cortical activity and the cortical mechanisms of paroxysmal neurological disorders such as migraine and epilepsy. All together, we are planning to have between 25–30 international and Russian speakers.
The conference will take place in a small hotel located in biostation Bolshie Koty on the lake, approximately 50 miles from Irkutsk.
