Brain Rhythms in Health & Disease Symposium

April 4 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


This symposium is designed to bring together experts in cellular, circuit, systems, and behavioral neuroscience to share and discuss the advances and challenges in the scientific study of oscillations and synchronized activity.

The symposium will allow speakers to present their emerging understanding of the mechanistic role of neuronal oscillations in brain dynamics, cognition, behavior, and in disease.

As part of the knowledge transfer mission of MIT, this symposium will provide opportunities for disseminating knowledge, shaping new areas of scientific interest, and providing fora for discussing the latest research.

Invited speakers and audience will be interdisciplinary in nature and will have the chance to propose, integrate, and communicate research to academic colleagues in order to facilitate close collaborations and shape concrete research directions for all participants.
