Session themes included:
- Making connections – the genetics and molecular mechanisms of synaptic connectivity and its implication in disease, such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia.
- Assembling circuits – network-level and experience-dependent mechanisms of circuit assembly
- From genotype to phenotype – exploring genetic architecture and pathogenic mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disorders, integrating cell biology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, neuroimaging and behaviour from model organisms to humans.
- Developmental trajectories – secondary and cascading effects of mutations over development, homeostasis, epigenetics, interplay with maturational processes
- Connectivity - exploring the structural and functional attributes of large-scale brain networks, their development and new methods to visualise them.
- From brain to mind – understanding the structure and function of neuronal microcircuits and larger networks and how they mediate behaviour, perception and cognition.
