Connection between physics & metabolism in brain function


Places available


The laws of physics govern essential metabolic processes such as cell mechanics, membrane dynamics, neuronal signaling, and cell bioenergetics.

The international symposium: Connection between physics & metabolism in Brain function will bring together for the first-time world experts in physics and neurobiology to better understand the mechanisms underlying these metabolic processes in the brain, with the aim of fostering new interdisciplinary collaborations. Join us and interact with prestigious speakers who will discuss the physics of life, the physics of metabolism and the physics of the brain!
