    Memory Mechanisms in Health and Disease

    5th December – 8th December 2016

    nerves-300x195We 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

    1. How is memory stored at the molecular and neuronal circuit level?
    2. How is memory storage affected in dementia and autism?
    3. What are the molecular mechanisms and neuronal circuits of retrieval-induced memory modulation?
    4. How is retrieval-induced memory modulation impaired in post-traumatic stress disorder?

    Next to invited speakers, further speakers from abstract submissions will be selected.
