Neuro Workshop: Gradients of Brain Organization (Virtual)

Event

Event Abstract: How is the brain organized? How do anatomy and physiology vary in space? Classic and recent research show smooth spatial trends - gradients - in many neurobiological features. Identification and analysis of gradients provides a framework to study brain organization across scales, species and time. In this workshop, we explore topographic principles of brain organization and how new discoveries are changing our understanding of brain function. We'll host a series of talks on stunning, new gradients research, and bring together early career and established researchers for panel discussions on this work.
