8th International Conference on Hormones Brain and Behavior (ICHBB)
Official retirement of Jacques BALTHAZART, University of Liege
Liege, June 25-27, 2014
The 8th ICHBB was a great success with a rich scientific program and a number of speakers of high value. The conference was opened by a lecture from Peg McCarthy and continued with 6 symposia dedicated to:
- sexual differentiation
- sexual and social motivations
- aromatase and estrogen action
- neuroprotection and endocrine disruption
- seasonality and plasticity
- brain plasticity.
Giancarlo Panzica, NICO, gave a lecture on "Sexually dimorphic effects of endocrine disruptors on brain and behavior".
Additonal plenary lectures were from Barney Schlinger and Greg Ball.
The conference was organized to honour the official retirement of Jacques Balthazart. Therefore all the speakers contributed with their personal knowledge about Jacques, his personality, his role in behavioral research, his teaching and mentoring activity.
Chiarire la complessità delle funzioni dei miRNA può permettere di modularli a fini terapeutici, ad esempio per stimolare la ricrescita assonale o per modulare la neuroinfiammazione nelle lesioni traumatiche. La review - a firma di Matilde Ghibaudi, Marina Boido e del nostro direttore Alessandro Vercelli - è scaricabile gratuitamente fino a dicembre.
