Targeting interneurons in health and disease
Interneurons make up a minority of the cells in the central nervous system but play a major role in regulating the activity of excitatory neurons. Interneurons shape development, control neuronal excitability and orchestrate rhythmic brain activity, and interneuron dysfunction underlies many diseases, from epilepsy to schizophrenia. This symposium aims to gather local and international experts in interneuron development, physiology, and pathology, and create a forum for networking and discussion around this highly diverse and fundamental class of neuronal cells.
