Nous avons le plaisir d'accueillir pour la première fois à Lyon le Club de Neurobiologie des Invertébrés.

Date limite d'inscription le 15 mai 2013

Inscription avec dinner : 62 € TTC

Inscription sans dinner: 20 € TTC

Venez nombreux!

Organisation: Bertrand Mollereau, Nathalie Davoust, Laurent Seugnet, Corinne Novel-Catin


Welcome to the 14th French Conference on Invertebrate Neurobiology. This conference covers a wide range of neuroscience topics including development of the nervous system, neural functions, sensory and motor systems, models of neurodegenerative diseases, learning and memory or circadian rhythm. Several invertebrate models will be covered such as Drosophila, C. elegans, butterflies and additional disgusting bugs.
