Call for Abstracts

Dendrites are complex structures that extend the computational power of neurons and serve as the substrate for network connectivity. The theoretical implication of dendritic structure on computational capacity has been studied since the 1950s, however recent technological advances allow us to observe and experiment in unprecedented detail and scale. Dendrites 2016 aims to bring together a wide range of studies, with topics ranging from general to system-specific phenomena, at scales raging from molecular to behavioral. We welcome contributions of both experimental and theoretical nature, that is in-vivo, in-vitro, and in-silico, addressing issues related to health or disease states, development or aging.

Submitted contributions should address novel findings, methods, or databases related to dendrites, that fall into one or more of the following domains:
  • morphological and functional characterizations,
  • dendritic integration and compartmentalization,
  • dendritic channel distribution and their functional implications,
  • molecular pathways and signaling networks,
  • RNA trafficking and local protein synthesis,
  • functional or structural plasticity and homeostasis,
  • the role of dendrites in complex processes, including learning/memory, neural computations etc.
