    Advances in Basic and Clinical Aspects of Neurodevelopmental Disorders

    The workshop will provide a platform for basic and clinical researchers to communicate and disseminate most recent research findings of neurodevelopmental disorders, focusing on genetic disorders comorbid with autism.

    Advances in neuroscience provide new insights into disturbed molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders. Understanding of the molecular mechanisms leading to the clinical disease phenotypes improves possibilities for optimal interventions and targeted treatment for brain diseases. Increased knowledge about brain function has allowed invention of new treatment approaches and several clinical trials are on-going for a number of neurodevelopmental disorders, including genetic syndromes comorbid with autism such as fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, and Rett syndrome. The workshop will educate and improve understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental defects and promotes optimal pharmacological treatment approaches and biomarker discovery for neurodevelopmental disorders. By bringing people involved in both basic and clinical aspects of neurodevelopmental disorders together, the workshop provides opportunities for technology transfer and innovation as well as collaboration.

    The organizers of the workshop: 

    Maija Castrén, Faculty of Medicine/Physiology, University of Helsinki, Finland, and 
    Barbara Bardoni, INSERM Institut de Pharmacologie et Cellulaire/CNRS UMR7275, Valbonne, France.

    The workshop is supported by 
    the Institut Francais de Finlande, the Embassy of France in Finland, the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Foundation Jerôme Lejeune, the Doctoral Program Brain & Mind and the Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters.

    Baltic Sum­mer School on Be­ha­vi­oural Char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of Ro­dent Mod­els of Ma­jor Brain Dis­orders

    The target group for this training course are doctoral and post-doctoral students working in broad areas of neuroscience and pharmacology. The aim of the course is to introduce a variety of methods available for assessment of rodent behaviour in laboratory conditions. A special emphasis is on translational potential of behavioural animal models. In addition, good practices for design and implementation of animal testing will be covered, addressing the ongoing debate and concerns regarding reliability and reproducibility of findings in basic research
