Neruoscience 1154x400 Symposium 2017

All-Optical Approaches in Neurobiological Studies

Satellite Event at NEUROSCIENCE 2017 Washington, DC

Symposium & Reception

Join us for an opportunity to learn from researchers in the neuroscience community (many of whom were involved in pioneering photo-stimulation techniques) as they explore unique facets of utilizing all optical techniques for photostimulation combined with imaging to gain a functional understanding of neural networks.

This symposium aims to facilitate collaboration among peers from around the globe and provide an opportunity for researchers to seek out mentors.

The presentations begin at 6:30 and are followed by a reception for attendees with appetizers and beverages provided.
