About this Research Topic
This Research Topic serves as a repository of the research presentations and communications at the 2023 summer conference titled “Structure, Function and Development of Neural Circuits” (August 21-23, 2023), co-sponsored by the Cajal Club, the Allen Institute for Brain Science, and the UC Irvine Center for Neural Circuit Mapping. The main Conference will take place at the Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences & Engineering near the UC Irvine campus located in the beautiful city of Irvine in Southern California. Additional workshops will take place on UCI campus. In this front-of-the-field conference, leaders and attendees from diverse institutions will present their research progress and technology advancements, and bring unique perspectives to the theme of integrating the different facets of neural circuits – structure, function, development and disease.
We welcome all article types including research reports, method papers, reviews and perspectives, and case reports related to studying the aspects of structure, function and development of neural circuits in health and disease. All conference participants are strongly encouraged to submit their work to the Research Topic; however, the Topic is also open to non-conference attendees who would be interested.
Keywords: #UCI_NeurCircuit, Neural Circuits, Cell Types, Circuit Development, Systems Neuroscience, Developmental Disorders, Connectivity, Viral Genetic Tool Development, Transcriptomics, Connectomics
