Mini-Symposium “Excitable cell networks in heart and brain”

on November 23rd and 30th, 2020, from 1 pm until 5 pm
via ZOOM

This mini symposium focuses on cross-scale analysis of information processing in cardiac and/or neural networks by means of imaging, optogenetics and/or electrophysiology as well as computational modelling. Such cross-scale analysis propagates insights from the structural and functional studies of molecular machines of cells to the level of excitable cell networks. This is of fundamental importance for understanding both cardiac and neural networks and will help to develop innovative therapeutic strategies for disorders affecting the heart, the brain, or both.
