Dear All,

The deadline for application to the Jacques Monod Conference on “Optical imaging of brain connectivity: from synapses to networks in action” is extended to March 14, 2016.

Don’t hesitate to send an abstract, there are still some possibilities to attend. Note that up to 6 participants will be selected for a short talk, based on their abstracts.

Best regards,
Christophe Mulle
Fritjof Helmchen
