Leica Lecture

Speaker: Prof. Thomas Südhof
       Stanford University School of Medicine, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, USA
       
 Time: Sep.21 08:00-08:30 am
 Title: The Molecular Logic of Neural Circuits: Implications for Autism and Schizophrenia

  Thomas Südhof is interested in how synapses are formed and function during development and in the adult. His work focuses on the role of synaptic cell-adhesion molecules in shaping synapse properties, on pre- and postsynaptic mechanisms of membrane traffic, and on impairments in synapse formation and function in neuropsychiatric disorders. To address these questions, Südhof's laboratory employs approaches ranging from biophysical and biochemical studies to the physiological and behavioral analyses of mutant mice and the in vitro derivation of human neurons.
Leica Lecture

Speaker: Prof. Fred H. Gage
       The Salk Institute, Laboratory of Genetics, USA
        
 
Time: Sep.22 08:30-09:15 am
 Title: Regulation and Function of Adult Neurogenesis in the Mammalian Hippocampus

  Fred H. Gage, a professor in the Laboratory of Genetics, concentrates on the adult central nervous system and unexpected plasticity and adaptability to environmental stimulation that remains throughout the life of all mammals. Gage's lab showed that, contrary to accepted dogma, human beings are capable of growing new nerve cells throughout life. Small populations of immature nerve cells are found in the adult Human brain, a process called Neurogenesis. Gage is working to understand how these cells can be induced to become mature functioning nerve cells in the adult brain and spinal cord. They showed that environmental enrichment and physical exercise can enhance the growth of new brain cells and they are studying the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurogenesis.
HT Chang Memorial Lecture

Speaker: Prof. Liqun Luo
       Stanford University School of Medicine, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, USA
 Time: Sep.23 15:30-16:15 pm
 Title: Mapping global patterns of connectivity in the mammalian brain

  Liqun Luo seeks to understand how neural circuits are organized to process information and how neural circuits assemble during development. He has developed genetic tools to track neurons in the brains of fruit flies and mice to investigate these problems. We are pursuing these core interests through four research programs:
1. Organization of the fly and mouse olfactory systems; 2. Assembly of the fly olfactory circuit; 3. Explorations of mammalian neural development; 4. Development of genetic tools to probe neural circuit assembly and organization
FAONS Lecture

Speaker: Prof. Hitoshi Okamoto
       RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan
     
 
Time: Sep.21 17:45-18:30 pm
 Title: Control of Social Aggression by the Habenula

  We are interested in revealing the basic role of emotions in such selection of behaviors in animals including humans. Our research is focused on three themes: Investigating the role of the evolutionary conserved limbic circuit within vertebrates. Exploring the role of habenula in emotional behaviors.
FAONS Lecture

Speaker: Prof. John Paul Bolam

 Time: Sep.23 08:30-09:15 am
 Title: Dopamine neurons, synapses and susceptibility in Parkinson’s disease.

  Neurobiology and pharmacology of the basal ganglia in health and disease. Current research projects involve the anatomical, neurochemical and physiological characterization of the neuronal networks of the basal ganglia in health and disease.

Plenary Lecture

Speaker: 刘嘉
       北京师范大学

 Time: Sep.22 13:30-14:15 pm
 Title: Genetic variation in S100B modulates neural basis of human spatial navigation

  刘嘉借助磁共振脑成像技术和分子遗传学技术,从认知发展的角度,试图理解人类众多功能特异化的认知模块(如面孔识别、空间导航、数量理解、语言加工等)的遗传基础和神经可塑性,以及它们如何交互作用形成人类引以为傲的智能。正在开展的课题有:1)认知模块的神经网络;2)遗传和环境对该神经网络的调制;3)该神经网络的产生与发育;4)各认知模块之间的交互,以及他们与人类智力的关系。
