Institut du Fer à Moulin 2013 International Colloquium

The complex structural organization of the brain has fascinated generations of scientists since the discovery in the early 20th century that the brain is made up of a large variety of cell types with highly specific interconnections. In recent years, researchers came up with an amazing variety of new tools to investigate and visualize new dimensions of neural circuits that were not accessible before. An example of this is the comprehensive study of all the neural connections in the brain (the "connectome"), leading to the identification of circuits involved in specific brain functions in health and disease. The goal of the IFM International Colloquium: "New Dimensions to Brain Connectivity" is to bring to Paris world renowned pioneer scientists to summarize the state-of-the-art in the field as well as to identify future challenges.
