Symposia

Welcome to the ANS Developmental Neuroscience Forum (ADNF)! The mission of the ADNF is to provide year-long engagement for Australasian Neuroscience Society Members and our colleagues all around the world with an interest in developmental neuroscience.

Our inaugural symposium was held in September, 2020. If you missed it, you are welcome to watch it again! Further details of our Symposia are provided below. Our next session is here.

We encourage you to sign up and join our mailing list to receive full details of presentations and speakers. You can also recommend a colleague or even nominate yourself to speak about your exciting project that is in pre-print, or recently published. We welcome your participation, as audience member as well as speaker!

With best wishes,
Your friendly ADNF team
(Julian Heng, Nathalie Dehorter, Michael Piper, Kelly Glendining)

ADNF Symposium II

Date: Thursday, 29th October, 2020

Missed the session? Don’t worry, Michel Picardo’s presentation was recorded here. We encourage you to contact the speakers directly should you have any questions from their presentation, or you are also welcome to send us your comments or questions through the registration box as well. Please enjoy!

Stefan ThorUQ/SBMS“Selective Requirement for PRC2 in the Generation of Hypothalamic Dopamine and Hypocretin/Orexin Neurons”

Michel Picardo, INMED France- Coordinated activity in the developing region CA1 of the hippocampus: Focus on Twitches and Interneurons? 

Natalia De Marco GarciaWeill Cornell Medical College- Network Activity in the Development of Inhibitory Circuits

Owen Marshall, UTAS/Menzies Institute– New states of mind: epigenetics, development and disease in the fly brain

Not all seminars are represented on YouTube video? Not all presentation have been filmed, as per requested.  This is because we seek approval from speakers to publish recordings of their videos online.  We are delighted that many of our speakers were presenting new and unpublished findings yesterday, and so we hope that you might be able to attend future meetings, live, so that you do not miss out on the great science on display!
