NRM 2018, London – The XII International Symposium of Functional Neuroreceptor Mapping of the Living Brain

Monday 9 – Thursday 12 July

Our understanding of neuroreceptor function is largely based upon the study of isolated proteins in vitro. However,  brain neuroreceptors and molecular recognition sites should not only be studied in isolation in a test-tube.  They are part of a complex, dynamic and communicating environment that makes the living human brain  “the most sophisticated machine imaginable, or unimaginable.”  – Joseph LeDoux

Join us at this biennial meeting, dedicated to the study of neuroreceptors in the living human brain – ‘Mapping Neroreceptors at Work’. The scientific program of this meeting will be multidisciplinary and translational, with a focus on the latest research on the study of in vivo neurotransmission:

  • In vivo receptor-receptor interactions and interneuronal communication
  • In vivo normo/pathophysiology
  • In vivo / in vitro discrepancies in molecular recognition
  • Misfolded proteins in vivo
  • In vivo human pharmacology
  • Evaluation of new therapeutics in vivo
