Understanding Behaviour: Molecular, Cellular & Systems Approaches
FENS Forum of Neuroscience 2022
Saturday 9th July 2022 – 09h00-1:h30 (CEST)

The European Brain and Behaviour Society (EBBS), European Behavioural Pharmacology Society (EBPS), European Molecular and Cellular Cognition Society (EMCCS) and International Behavioural and Neural Genetics Society (IBANGS) invite you to our jointly organized mini conference.

The overarching theme of the 2022 mini conference will be Understanding Behaviour: Molecular, Cellular & Systems Approaches. Under this theme, each society will host their own session featuring junior and established researchers (3 per session) within their membership to speak on topics focused on the ethology of animal models used in neuroscience research and the various techniques to identify specific mechanisms of brain function and behaviour in these models. Each session will end with a Q&A. 

Conference organizers: Anand Gururajan (EBPS), Christelle Baunez (EBPS), Yavin Shaham (EBPS), Igor Branchi (EBBS), Alexander Easton (EBBS), Kobi Rosenblum (EMCCS), Andre Fischer (EMCCS), Camron Bryant (IBANGS), Wim Crusio (IBANGS), Anna Delprato (IBANGS)
