Research Headlines - Charting a course towards autonomous shipping

[Source: Research & Innovation] Autonomous cargo ships could provide a safer, greener and more cost efficient means of moving goods around the world. And while further development is needed, they are feasible, say EU-funded researchers.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Neural circuits in the past, present and future, Heidelberg, Germany

The goal of this symposium is to promote interactions between researchers studying neural circuits both in traditional model systems (worm, fly, fish, mouse), in humans, and in diverse, emerging models to

  1. discuss the origins, commonalities and differences of animal nervous systems,
  2. highlight the spectacular capabilities of neural circuits to control animal behaviour, and
  3. reflect on how technological innovations will open up new possibilities to understand and repair the nervous system.

By bringing together a unique and eclectic mix of scientists studying nervous systems from the molecular to the psychological level, this symposium should stimulate novel cross-fertilisation of ideas and methodologies to understand neural circuit structure and function.
