Cell NERF Symposium: Neurotechnologies
Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2018 in Leuven, Belgium

Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders (http://www.nerf.be) would like to 
invite you to the Cell NERF Symposium on Neurotechnologies taking place 
on Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2018 in Leuven, Belgium.

The meeting will broadly focus on neurotechnologies for research and 
neuroprosthetic applications, covering advances in molecular, optical, 
and electrophysiological approaches for measuring and manipulating 
neural circuits.

Recent technological advances from fields as diverse as gene and protein 
engineering, optics, photonics, chemistry, materials science, 
nanoscience, electrophysiology, and more have helped propel forward our 
understanding of the genetic, molecular, and physiological mechanisms 
that contribute to the development and function of the central nervous 
system. We will bring together leading experts at the forefront of 
neurotechnology development to discuss the next generation of tools and 
methods. They will present their latest work and share their thoughts 
more broadly on how the field as a whole might tackle critical challenges.

Abstract submission deadline: June 1, 2018

     Neural recordings: imaging and electrophysiological approaches
     Prosthetics and brain-machine interfaces
     Optical manipulation of circuits and cells
     Material science and nanotechnology
     Design of new probes and sensors
