#PLOS #SfN15 Preview: Hidden variables of behavior

Of the many mysteries that first enticed me to become a neuroscientist, perhaps the most compelling was the mechanism by which brain function translates into behavior. How, exactly, does a blob of neural tissue give rise – via electrical impulses and chemical signals – to the complex actions, thoughts and emotions that define the human experience? These questions will be the focus of the symposium “Hidden Variables of Behavior: Neuronal Parameters Underlying Brain States,” at the Society for Neuroscience meeting this Sunday, October 18, 2015 from 1:30-4:00 pm. The session will feature four experts discussing how neurophysiological dynamics, life experience and epigenetics shape the brain-behavior relationship. Here’s a sneak peek into the exceptional line-up for this symposium. Catherine Dulac. Neural control of parental behaviors Dr. Dulac is the Higgens Professor…
