7th international caesar conference: “Missing links in neuroscience: Bridging scales in theory and experiment”

5 Feb 2018 at 11:22

The upcoming international caesar conference will bring together outstanding scientists from both experimental and theoretical neuroscience. It will take place between June 5th and 6th, 2018. Registrations are open online at www.caesarconference.com.

Bonn, February 5th, 2018. In science, matters of scale are often crucial. This is especially true when it comes to neuroscience. Neural information processing takes place on numerous temporal and spatial scales, ranging from minute subcellular processes up to the level of the whole organism of behaving animals. Yet, how does one bridge between these scales? How do you integrate data from this enormous spectrum into coherent theories and experiments?

The international caesar conference brings together a range of outstanding scientists from both experimental and theoretical neuroscience. The aim is to foster discussions on how to bridge between relevant scales of brain structure and function as well as between experimental data, numerical simulations and conceptual models.


About the caesar foundation and the caesar international conference

The caesar foundation is associated with the Max Planck Society and operates a center for neuroethology research in Bonn. All scientific directors are scientific members of the Max Planck Society. More on the research can be found at www.caesar.de.

New Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology of Behavior – caesar

Since January 01st 2022, the research center caesar in Bonn has become the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology of Behavior – caesar. Scientists from more than 35 nations study how the collective activity of vast numbers of neurons gives rise to the variety of animal behaviors across many species. They are now part of a large network that offers not only new scientific infrastructures, exchange and collaborations, but also a wide range of training and career opportunities. “Bringing the institute into the Max Planck family is an exciting time for us” agree the two directors Jason Kerr and Kevin Briggman.
