2023 NeuroNex Annual Meeting
National Press Club; NSF Headquarters
Washington DC; Virginia

The 2023 NeuroNex Annual Meeting, ‘From Octopus to Macaque: The Wondrous Challenges of Diverse Nervous Systems’ will follow the conclusion of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) Conference.

This meeting, organized by Amy Arnsten, Yale University and Julio Martinez-Trujillo, Robarts Research, Canada, will explore how different animals have diverse types of intelligence, and how the corresponding differences in their nervous systems may help to illuminate the mechanisms that mediate cognition in humans. Attendees will learn about the remarkable behaviors of octopus, crows and primates, and the challenges to tool-makers to extend our current technologies to these nonrodent species. They will also learn about the similarities and differences between marmosets and macaques, as marmosets are becoming an important new animal model for the exploration of higher cognition.

The event will be kicked off with talks and refreshments at 6.30 pm on November 15 at the National Press Club in Washington DC (2 blocks from the Metro Center Metro) followed by a talk and poster session day at NSF headquarters in Alexandria, VA (Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station/3 Stops from DCA Airport) on November 16 from 10 am-4 pm.

Moving the body: Communication, Coordination and Control in Neuromechanical Systems
Related Project:
Göttingen, Germany
This symposium, part of the German Neuroscience Society Meeting 2023, will feature four speakers from C3NS. They are at different career stages, work in different model systems, use different methodological approaches, and focus on different regions of the nervous system. However, they all work towards the same goal: understanding how nervous systems enable adaptive interactions with the environment.
