2017 Karger Workshop Line-Up Now Live





Hi all! Long time, no see!

I'm pleased to share with you the finalized speaker line-up for this year's Karger Workshop in Evolutionary Neuroscience (https://goo.gl/xi7PCa)! The 2017 Karger Workshop is entitled: “From fossils to function: integrative and taxonomically-inclusive approaches to vertebrate evolutionary neuroscience.”

The workshop will feature presentations and discussions that touch on three main subtopics:
  • Comparative studies of brains in a wide array of extant vertebrate taxa, with special focus on groundbreaking structural and functional neuroimaging techniques
  • Best practices for the inference, reconstruction, and comparative investigation of endocranial soft-tissue structures in extinct vertebrate taxa 
  • Moving towards research that embraces an integrative approach (i.e., incorporating evidence from extinct and extant taxa), with an emphasis on deliberate, incremental studies of nervous system form and function within and across Vertebrata
Workshop attendees get access to the full day of talks, as well as opportunities for in-depth group discussions.

If you're interested in joining us for this awesome event, please consider submitting an abstract (goo.gl/hlJavQ) to the JBJC regular meeting that directly follows the Karger Workshop. The abstract deadline is May 31, 2017. Hope to see you there!
