Mini-conference

MC08 - Mini-Conference organised by Nicotine and the Developing Brain (SRNT)

Room
Gala 1&2
Date
11.07.2020, Saturday
Session Time
08:30 - 15:15
Session Description
During adolescence the brain regions such as prefrontal cortex necessary for cognitive and executive function, working memory, motivated behaviour and emotional regulation are being reorganized. Cholinergic system and cholinergic nicotinic receptors are important role players in this maturation process of brain from adolescence to adulthood. The disruption of the function of the cholinergic system during this maturation process with external nicotine, via tobacco or e-cigarettes, has long-lasting consequences on this development, as adolescent brain is quite sensitive to nicotine. The effects of nicotine in adolescent brain differ from those of adult brain. Also, adolescent nicotine exposure may induce epigenetic changes that sensitize the brain to other drugs of abuse via altering the response of dopaminergic system.

MC06 - Sleep across the lifespan

Room
Forth
Date
11.07.2020, Saturday
Session Time
08:30 - 15:15
Session Description
The importance of sleep for the development and memory and the impact of sleep quality on daytime functioning in infants and children will be covered discussed and up-to-date research will be presented. The conference will also focus on cognitive neuroscience, new sleep circuitries and memory function in adults, before concluding on the importance of sleep and aging, neurodegeneration and sleep-wake regulation in disease. The content will be brought to you by a multi-disciplinary faculty of basic scientists and clinicians. The mini-conference is organised by the British Sleep Society (BSS) in collaboration with the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS). Attendance to the mini conferences requires additional registration. For more information and to register visit https://forum2020.fens.org/mini-conferences/

MC02 - Molecular mechanisms of cognitive impairments and intellectual disability. Organised by the European Society for Neurochemistry (ESN)

Room
Dochart 1
Date
11.07.2020, Saturday
Session Time
08:30 - 15:00
Session Description
Cognitive impairment and intellectual disability affect a large population of children suffering from neurodevelopmental diseases as well as the elderly population succumbing to age-associated cognitive impairments. Understanding the molecular mechanisms of these disorders will aid in better diagnosis and improved treatments. The mini-conference will feature some leading genes causing autism/intellectual disability syndromes, like ADNP and CHD8, as well as electrophysiology and molecular mechanisms of intellectual disability. The role of environmental factors as well as basic mechanisms of synaptic transmission and neuro-glial interactions will also be elucidated. Finally, innovative drug development will be discussed toward better cognitive functioning both in children and elderly. A collaborative effort between the European Society for Neurochemistry (ESN) and the UK based Simon Initiative for the developing brain will underpin this event. Attendance to the mini conferences requires additional registration. For more information and to register visit https://forum2020.fens.org/mini-conferences/

MC07 - A celebration of women in developmental neuroscience organised by Cajal Club

Room
Dochart 2
Date
11.07.2020, Saturday
Session Time
08:30 - 15:00
Session Description
The Cajal Club is delighted to announce this mini-conference entitled “A Celebration of Women in Developmental Neuroscience” as part of the 12th FENS Forum of Neuroscience in Glasgow on the 11th July 2020. The mini-conference is inspired by three themes: First, Cajal Club-sponsored meetings at other venues traditionally focus on the cerebral cortex. Here we will highlight advances in the several other model systems Cajal studied, with a focus on development. Second, we aim to celebrate women in science by showcasing women scientists especially in Europe who work on these systems. Third, we will have the opportunity to hear about the women neuroscientists in the Cajal school through a talk by Fernando de Castro, who has recently authored an article on this theme.
