A UCSB symposium features cutting-edge developments in molecular and cellular approaches to understanding brain structure and function.


Some of the most profound conditions affecting humans — from Alzheimer’s disease and autism to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder — are neurological in origin. Yet despite decades of research, the brain and its related diseases remain largely a mystery.


So said UC Santa Barbara’s Kenneth S. Kosik, speaking at a daylong conference exploring systems neuroscience, the study of how nerve cells behave when connected as neural networks.
