Thalamus Anatomy and Connectomics Conference

A two-days hybrid conference with talks and discussions
October 30 and 31, 2023

The Thalamus Conference aims to extend the dialogue and discussion on the thalamus that began with the previous online Thalamus e-Symposium organized by TANGO.

Immerse in the intricate thalamus

All sensory, motor, and limbic information to the cortex passes via the thalamus. Furthermore, the interaction between various cortical areas also requires a thalamic engagement. Therefore, we need a better understanding of the human thalamus and its connectivity in health and disease.


The conference will cover topics related to the thalamus, including:

  • Anatomy and connectivity of the thalamus
  • The role of the thalamus in sensory processing, attention, and cognition
  • Thalamus in various neurodegenerative disorders and psychiatric conditions
  • Computational models of thalamic functions
  • Novel imaging techniques and application to the study of the thalamus

The conference will attract a diverse audience of neuroscientists, clinicians, and computational modelers interested in the thalamus. Attendees will benefit from the opportunity to engage with leading experts in the field, learn about the latest research findings, and exchange ideas and knowledge.



Since this is a hybrid meeting, you can choose whether you would like to participate on location or virtually only.
