This is a rare opportunity, where in the same room, you might have busy clinicians and academic leaders. You actually start to understand how this all works together - and that's where you get the excitement, where there's understanding that bringing academic medicine to a busy clinical setting ultimately really distinguishes the healthcare delivery.

Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders Symposium
From Neural Circuit to Clinical Pathways to Psychiatric Disorders

 Track type: Symposium

Date: 18 Sep 2021


 Time: 1115 - 1245

Location: Seminar Room 2

Deficits in error monitoring, attentional function, and executive control are common to many neuropsychiatric diseases, including schizophrenia, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders. However, little is known about the specific neural pathways that are linking these processes.

In this symposium, the speakers will deliver current state-of-art understanding on the neural basis of cognitive control as well as a specific circuit mechanism linking components of a cognitive control system using various approaches including fMRI, in vivo multi-photon imaging, in vivo miniscope, and opto- and chemo-genetic approaches in animal models as well as human patients.
