Mapping changes in brain composition and dynamics across the lifespan is critical to identifying sensitive developmental processes that, when disrupted, can lead to disease later in life. Better approaches are needed to causally link brain maps and these processes and identify biomarkers of atypical neurodevelopment that may signal neurodegenerative disorders in adulthood.
This workshop connects researchers who are focused on different timepoints and levels of resolution, in different model systems and over different timescales, to jointly explore existing and emerging tools and methods for measuring cellular identity, connectivity, and activity changes in the brain over time. Workshop participants will also identify research gaps and opportunities for bridging gaps in our understanding of early neurodevelopment and of health and disease later in life.
Individuals who need reasonable accommodations to participate in this activity should contact Monica Barnette at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 5 days in advance.
- Each day of the workshop has a slightly different timeframe:
- On April 18, activities begin at 11 a.m. ET and continue until 5 p.m. ET.
- On April 19, activities begin at noon ET and go to 5 p.m. ET.
