// Neurotechnology@Donders symposium Nijmegen



March 8th, 2013 Figdor Hall,  NCMLS building, Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen

Organized by Francesco Battaglia and Benno Roozendaal


Recent technological advances, such as optogenetics, genetic manipulation, micro and nanotechnology devices, have started a revolution in system neuroscience, allowing us to probe brain circuits with unprecedented power and precision. The Donders Centre for Neuroscience has recently initiated multiple research lines at the crossroads of technology, neurophysiology and behavior. As a kickoff event for this effort, we will have a group of renowned international speakers showing us new technologies and the possibilities that they give to neuroscience. We will also showcase the new groups at DCN that will be involved in the neurotechnology research lines.
