A focal impetus behind the Network Neuroscience approach is that it provides a framework for interpreting the brain as an interconnected system. This approach offers quantitatively different maps of the brain where networks, consisting of nodes (e.g., genes, neurons or brain regions) and links (e.g., interactions, synaptic, anatomical or functional connections) are endowed with topological properties. It also provides a novel framework for studying fundamental aspects of brain organization including its complexity at all spatiotemporal scales. In particular, a Network Neuroscience approach permits structural and anatomical analyses of the brain from the molecular, to the neuronal, to the macroscopic and behavioral scales. Critical to the development of Network Neuroscience is the necessity of a forum to discuss and understand the brain at these various levels. Moreover, such a forum also codifies and facilitates more cross-disciplinary communication critical to the advancement of scientific discovery.
Call for Contributions
You are invited to submit your talk and/or poster by June 29th 11:59pm Anywhere on Earth. Submissions should be in the format of a one-page pdf with one figure.
Themes in the Network Neuroscience remit include, but are not limited to: (i) Interactome networks; (ii) Transcriptional and gene regulation networks; (iii) Structural brain networks (imaging); (iv) Functional brain networks (imaging); (v) Brain networks – theory, modeling and analysis; (vi) Signal processing and information flow; (vii) Circuit dynamics; (viii) Brain-behavior interactions; (ix) Systems neuroscience. All themes apply to any species.
Network Neuroscience 2022 will be held virtually on July 11th & July 12th 2022. The timing will be considerably different on each day to welcome our friends and colleagues in all timezones.
