Pittsburgh Hosts FLUX Congress

Pittsburgh is proud to host the inaugural International Congress for Integrative Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience (the Flux Congress) at the Wyndham Grand Hotel downtown On September 19-21, 2013. 
The Flux Congress will serve as a forum for developmental cognitive neuroscientists to share their findings, expand their approaches, and be informed of translational approaches.  This year?s theme aims to inform neuroimaging approaches with rodent and non-human primate models to provide insight into the possible neural mechanisms underlying developmental neuroimaging findings.

The Flux team, led by Conference Chair Dr. Bea Luna, Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, has created a conference program that will appeal to principal investigators, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students actively engaged in neuroscience representing a broad array of disciplines including:


Behavioral NeuroscienceExcitable Membranes and Ion Channels
Bioinformatics / NeuroinformaticsMotor Systems Neuroscience
Cellular and Molecular NeuroscienceNeural / Synaptic Structure and Function
Cognitive NeuroscienceNeuroendocrinology
Computational Neuroscience & ModelingNeuroengineering and Robotics
Developmental NeuroscienceNeuroethology
Disorders of the Nervous SystemNeuropharmacology & Neurochemistry
Evolutionary & Comparative NeuroscienceNeuroregeneration and Repair
History, Teaching, Public Awareness, and Societal Impacts in NeuroscienceNeuroscience of Aging

The conference program includes a welcome reception, poster session, and plenary sessions featuring leading experts from around the globe. David A. Lewis, MD, UPMC Endowed Professor in Translational Neuroscience and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, will present the Keynote Address on Understanding How Molecular Mechanisms Can Inform Systems Level Neuroimaging Studies Of Cognitive Development.
