The human mind is conventionally recognized as only derived from neuronal activity, with the dynamic activity of neurons involved in the transfer and processing of information. Glial cells, traditionally thought of simply as the “glue” of the nervous system, were thought to be uninvolved in information processing and only ensuring homeostatic maintenance. Recent evidence has now largely recognized that these cell types play many critical roles in the development and function of the brain.
Our conference entitled “Vis à vis in the Brain: The Neuron-Glia Interface” will bring together experts from Neuroscience, Neurotechnology, and Neuroimmunology to highlight and present the most recent developments and unpublished discoveries. It will take place at the Medical Center-University of Freiburg, just a few minutes from the bustling city center.
We cordially invite everyone to join us in Freiburg, inviting participants at all career stages working to participate in this meeting, discussing and exchanging latest discoveries and findings with regards to the Neuron-Glia interface.
