Symposium: Functional Studies in Human Brain Tissue
On June 12th, at Charité Campus Mitte, there will be a symposium focused on human brain physiology and pathophysiology using state-of-the-art functional experiments in vital tissue. Scientists from Berlin and abroad will discuss cellular and network function of human brain cells, in order to foster know-how transfer, scientific exchange and potential future collaborations.
The symposium will be divided in several sessions. It will start with a morning session in which Berlin-based scientists will present physiological and pathophysiological data obtained from human brain tissue. Around noon, speakers from other German centers and speakers from abroad will present their approaches and projects.
After the lunch break, it will continue with a keynote session in which Gabor Tamas from Hungary and Huibert Mansvelder from the Netherlands will present their work on human CNS (patho)physiology.
In the afternoon session, the focus will shift towards historical, clinical and neuropathological aspects which will be followed by a poster session.
In the final session, there will be talks from Jonathan Ting and his colleagues from the Allen Brain Institute, who will give an overview of their approaches to connect cellular neurophysiology and single cell genomics. The symposium will adjourn with a get-together in the Anatomy Hall.
