Announcing the Evolution of Brain, Behaviour & Intelligence conference
9th - 12th September 2009, Hinxton, Cambridge
In this bicentennial year of Charles Darwin's birth, the principles underlying the origins and evolution of nervous systems and their emergent behaviours remain a central question in biology. This meeting brings together international speakers addressing a broad range of approaches to the evolution of brain and behaviour. Research on many species from simple unicellular animals, invertebrates and vertebrates, including modern humans and neandertals will be presented. The program spans genes to behaviour through the latest applications of genomics and functional genomics and new behavioural and anatomical technologies. Students and postdocs are strongly encouraged to attend and present their work. A special lecture from the Dr. James Moore, the biographer of Charles Darwin will be a highlight of the meeting.
