Memory Mechanisms in Health and Disease
5th December – 8th December 2016
We are proud to announce the 1st Zing Memory Mechanisms in Health and Disease Conference which shall be taking place in December 2016.
This conference will present cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research on mechanisms of learning and memory in health and disease. Particular emphasis will be given to address the questions of
- How is memory stored at the molecular and neuronal circuit level?
- How is memory storage affected in dementia and autism?
- What are the molecular mechanisms and neuronal circuits of retrieval-induced memory modulation?
- How is retrieval-induced memory modulation impaired in post-traumatic stress disorder?
Next to invited speakers, further speakers from abstract submissions will be selected.
We will not process any abstract submissions from people who are not already registered for the conference. Please register before submitting your abstract. You do not need to pay any fees in order to Register for the conference

The Conference Chairs
The Sirata Beach sits on St Pete’s Beach it’s located just 10 minutes away from Downtown St Petersburg. Situated just 29 miles from Tampa International Airport.
The well-appointed conference centre provides an ideal location for scientific research conferences while the resort is scattered with areas well suited to continuing the discussions of the day’s proceedings.
Three fantastic signature restaurants which provide delicious food & live entertainment at Sirata Beach. You’ll find fresh Florida seafood on the menu at the Compass Grille, open for fantastic daytime snacks.
The Sirata Beach guestrooms offer a comfortable retreat with varying views of the courtyard and the Gulf of Mexico with its history relating back to Pre-Triassic times. All are excellently equipped with all basic amenities including Wi-Fi (payable locally).
