FRESH LOOK ON BRAIN INHIBITION
This year, the subject will be inhibition. This is a major issue since synaptic or intrinsic inhibition defects are at the root of neurological diseases such as epilepsy but also psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia. In addition, inhibitory circuits orchestrate neural activity under physiological conditions and are therefore at the origin of most major brain functions. A panel of 18 local, national (Paris, Saclay) and international (USA, UK, Switzerland, Germany) experts in the field of synaptic and intrinsic inhibition was selected to present their latest results. And this year again, the meeting will take place in a unique venue, the prestigious Hôtel Intercontinental Hôtel Dieu in Marseille, which provides this event with exceptional working conditions, concentration and exchanges.
