 Rewatch symposium on our YouTube channel

CNSeminars is joining forces with the journal, Brain Structure and Function (BSAF), and the Springer Neuroscience Network to host the first BSAF 'Structural Connectivity of the Cerebral Cortex' Special Issue symposium.  Co-hosted by Dr Hiromasa Takamura and Dr Michel Thiebaut de Schotten, this 2-day event will feature 10 different experts presenting various topics related to structural connectivity with time for a Q&A. See below for a tentative programme.


In the run-up to the symposium, want to learn some fun facts about the cortex and its connections? Watch our Intro 101 video!
