Dendrites are thin processes extending from the cell bodies of neurons. Since the majority of synaptic connections reside in dendrites, they provide the primary substrate for inter-neuronal communication. Beyond their role as conducting cables, dendrites of many neuron types contain a rich repertoire of ionic mechanisms that allow them to perform complex nonlinear computations. As a result, dendrites have been suggested to play a key role in information processing in the brain.
The goal of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together scientific leaders from around the world whose latest work on molecular, biophysical, anatomical, computational and/or functional aspects of dendrites can further our understanding of how these beautiful structures contribute to different brain functions and their abnormalities.
With the backdrop of an informal yet spectacular setting on the Greek island of Crete, the meeting has been carefully planned to not only satisfy our scientific curiosity but to also foster discussion and encourage interaction between attendees well beyond the traditional presentations. In this spirit, this EMBO Workshop will also dedicate half a day to addressing key issues of concern particularly for young researchers such as gender, work-family balance, open science and data sharing.
