[IMPORTANT DATES]
Abstract submission deadline: 12 January 2018
Author registration deadline: 28 February 2018

This meeting covers a wide range of fields within developmental neuroscience from basic studies with diverse model animals to studies of human diseases, and will include talks and poster presentations on the topics listed below. Two short talks will be selected for each symposium from the poster presentations. As in previous years, the ISDN will provide a number of travel and poster awards for trainees. We look forward to your participation.
