Theoretical advances in developmental neuroscience
July 19 or 20, 2000
This workshop will highlight the role of theoretical approaches in understanding development of the nervous system. Likely topics to be covered include
- Axon guidance
- Development of neural morphology
- Elimination of connections at neuromuscular junction
- Development of regular cell distributions
- Retinotopic map formation
Provisional speakers include Melanie Aeschlimann, Stephen Eglen, Bruce Graham, Arjen van Ooyen, Jaap van Pelt, David Willshaw. We hope to discuss recent results and insights gained using theoretical models, along with outstanding problems and likely directions for future research.
If you would like to contribute towards the workshop by giving a talk on same aspect of developmental neuroscience, please contact Stephen Eglen (email email@example.com). Alternatively just turn up with a few slides prepared beforehand.
Organized by Stephen Eglen and David Willshaw
