Wiring the brain: From genetic to neuronal networks  

This grant provides support for a scientific meeting. "Wiring the Brain: From Genetic to Neuronal Networks" will provide a unique forum for scientists across many disciplines, including neurophysiology, human genetics, neurodevelopment, clinical psychiatry and psychology to present their recent results, exchange ideas, and initiate collaborations. This meeting is a tremendous opportunity to improve our understanding of socially-devastating neurodevelopmental disorders with underlying defects of neuronal connectivity at large, such as schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorders as well as various forms of mental retardation and learning deficits. The integration of these areas of study now offer avenues and tools for the rational design of therapeutics to treat these and other disorders of major clinical, social and economic importance.
