MC01 - Understanding behaviour: Molecular, cellular & systems approaches. Organised by: EBPS, EBBS, EMCCS & IBANGS (09:00-13:20)

Theoretical and technical advances to deconvolute and understand the various mechanisms which underpin brain function and behaviour in model organisms are critical to developing new therapies for CNS disorders.

The overarching theme of the 2022 Mini Conference will be Understanding Behaviour: Molecular, Cellular & Systems Approaches. Hosted by EBPS, EBBS, EMCCS and IBANGS, this mini conference will consist of four sessions, with each session featuring talks by junior and established researchers to speak on the complexity of bridging brain and behaviour and on the relevance of the behavioural studies in
neuroscience research, describing the most advanced theoretical and methodological approaches to
behavioural phenotyping. We anticipate that our Mini Conference will be an exciting event bringing together established leaders and junior researchers from our four societies for a day of amazing science and networking opportunities.
