FENS-IBRO PERC stipends
Application deadline: 5 November 2021
FENS and IBRO-PERC provide 4 stipends of EUR 750 for Master and/or PhD students interested in attending the course “Current approaches in neurological disorder approach: from animal model to human brain on the chip” (6-10 December 2021, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Warsaw, Poland). Apply for a stipend. CAJAL Neurokit Extracellular Electrophysiology Acquisition
6-10 December 2021 – online hands-on training course
Application deadline: 18 October 2021, 23:59 CET In this short online course, you will develop your understanding of electrophysiology data acquisition. In terms of hardware, you will learn how acquisition systems can amplify tiny signals and filter out noise. You will test this understanding by building your own system to measure muscle and heart signals. In software, you will encounter synchronisation considerations as adding incoming datastreams and build an increasingly complex experimental design. Applications are now open! A new EJN call for papers“Local circuits to large-scale networks in the sleeping brain”
Submission deadline: 31 May 2022
Although states of sleep are universally described throughout the animal kingdom, the understanding of their relevance to brain function and dysfunction remains limited. Publish your research with the European Journal of Neuroscience and submit your paper for this new Special Issue!
Guest Editors: Antoine Adamantidis (University of Bern, CH), Lucia Talamini (University of Amsterdam, NL), Genevieve Albouy (University of Utah, US) and Adrien Peyrache (McGill University, CA).
