Segerfalk Symposium 2023
Brain Circuit Analysis
The topic of this year’s symposium is “Brain Circuit Analysis” with a focus on techniques to get access to genetically defined cell populations, perturbation of these cells using advanced methods such as optogenetics and chemogenetics and technologies that allow for the readout of cellular activities such as microelectrode clusters and calcium imaging.
May 3rd, 2023: 8.30 am - 17.00, Biomedical Center, Lund, Klinikgatan 32, D15, Belfrage Lecture Hall
Registration is now closed - we have reached the maximum number of participants for the Symposium.
