We are delighted to invite you to our "Neuroimmunity, Development & Psychiatry" International Symposium!
Friday, October 6 at 9:30AM
Recent findings show that the interaction of immune genes and environmental factors influencing immunity, such as infections and stress, shape the establishment of neuronal circuits (proliferation, migration, synaptogenesis) but also in the control of their refinement and plasticity at postnatal stages.
Disruptions in these interactions between immunity and brain during development have a major impact on the occurrence of psychiatric diseases: for example, consistent epidemiological studies have identified prenatal exposure to infection as a risk factor for a range of mental disorders, including autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenia.
The colloquium will gather top scientists investigating these questions from different angles, to present the most recent and significant findings on the links between immunity, brain development and psychiatric pathologies.
Time has also been prioritized for poster presentations and discussion.
Consult the program, submit your posters and find all the information you may need on our website https://neuroimpsy.org/.
Participation is free but registration is mandatory!
We look forward to seeing you there. Note the date and spread the word!
