SPECIAL EVENT: From synapses to behaviour: what is the quantal unit of neurocomputation?

On Friday the 12th of October the NEUReka team and the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre (SWC) are hosting an afternoon of scientific discussion in the Gordon Museum (Hodgkin building, Guy’s campus) from 1:00pm. 

There will be two keynote talks from Elisa Galliano, a former postdoc from Matthew Grubb’s lab, and Yo Isogai from the (SWC), followed by talks from postdocs and PhD students from both centres. Further to this there will be smaller discussion with snacks and drinks provided. All are welcome!
