The Canadian Neurometabolic meeting welcomes scientists interested in brain-metabolism interplay. Keynote lecture open to all features a keynote lecture in the field. Key objectives of the meeting are to provide a platform for trainees to present their latest research in the form of short talks and/or poster and to foster interactions and exchange amongst PIs and trainees during a meeting and a networking social.
Energy metabolism plays a critical role in neural signalling and plasticity and the modulation of behavioural, neuroendocrine and autonomic processes. As poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyle underlie the prevalence of obesity and associated psychiatric, neurogenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders, it is increasingly important to understand the interaction between diet, metabolism and central nervous system function.
The Canadian Neurometabolic Club meeting welcomes all scientists interested in brain-metabolism interplay. A key objective of the meeting is to provide a platform for trainees to present their research, in the form of a short talk or poster, and to foster interactions and exchange amongst PIs and trainees.
