IBRO Workshop 2014

January 16. - 17.

Debrecen, Hungary

Neurophotonics Workshop



In the Neurophotonics Workshop 2014 (Debrecen) we will focus on leading edge microscopic approaches to understand the functions of neurons and neuronal networks. The meeting will not simply showcase new methodologies, but also demonstrates how advanced microscopic methods are becoming central to neuroscience research, leading to fascinating discoveries and stimulating conceptual advances.

The meeting is scheduled for

2:30 p.m. January 15, 2014.
