Description

 

The 2022 Annual Meeting of the SSN is co-organized by the Universities of Ticino and Fribourg and is scheduled to take place on Friday, January 28 2022 at the University of Fribourg. Despite the great challenges imposed by Covid-19, more than 400 researchers and clinicians from Switzerland are expected to attend this meeting, which is the major Swiss venue for exchange of current scientific information in the area of brain research. The meeting has a wide focus that includes molecular and systems neuroscience, as well as clinical research and neural computation / bioinformatics.

The keynote lecturer Prof. Gilles Laurent from the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Germany, a world-wide leader in Neuroscience will speak about his institute’s current efforts in the domain of sleep and camouflage: explorations in neural dynamics. There will be four symposia chaired by prominent investigators in Switzerland on the specific topics of novel tools in systems neuroscience, neuroinflammation, the interaction of brain and body for consciousness and on motor disorders. There will also be a large poster session in person and online, fostering interaction and exchange of scientific ideas among the participants. A special aspect of this year is a presentation on the January 27 2021 of the new movie documentary by Jean-Stéphane Bron about the brain followed by a discussion with Monsieur Bron, neuroscientists and teachers about education, didactic methods and knowledge acquisition. This event will follow a day of presentations on career development and scientific exchange by ySSN. Owing to the Covid-19 situation, all presentations will allow for extra space following official guidelines or provide the opportunity to follow the event remotely using online conferencing software.

Gilles Laurent, MPI Brain Research, Frankfurt, Germany:


 


Gilles Laurent, a French citizen, was born in 1960 in Casablanca, Morocco. After a PhD in Neuroethology from the University Paul Sabatier of Toulouse (France) and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1985, he worked as a postdoc and a Locke Research Fellow of the Royal Society at the University of Cambridge/UK. In 1990, he joined the faculty of the Biology Division at the California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, CA, USA), where he became Lawrence A. Hanson Professor of Biology in the field of "Computation and Neural Systems” in 2002. His interests are in experimental and computational neuroscience, with an emphasis on coding and circuit computation in the olfactory and visual systems. In 2008, Gilles Laurent was appointed Director of the Department of Neural Systems and Coding at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt am Main (Germany).
