Imaging the Brain: From Molecules to Circuits and Beyond

Event Dates: 
Dec 8, 2017 -
1:00pm to 5:30pm
Live Symposium Webcast:

Access to the live webcast for this symposium will be provided here on Friday, December 8 starting at 1:00 PM (Pacific Time). Viewers will need to be logged into their user account to gain access, but are not required to register for this symposium.

Event Description:


Determination of structure provides important insights into function at all scales. This ancient principle was established initially for large structures like bridges and skeletons and more recently for cells and molecules. New imaging technologies make it possible to determine molecular, cellular, tissue and organ structure with unprecedented resolution and visualize changes causing/associated with changes in function. State-of-the-art imaging at the molecular, cellular, circuit, whole animal (rodent) and whole animal (primate) scales will be discussed, addressing the challenges of bridging spatial and temporal scales.

Parking, etc.

You can find a downloadable map with directions and parking tips below.  If you require handicap parking, please note that there are limited handicap spaces close to the auditorium.  There is, however, a drop-off area outside the main entrance, as indicated on the Drop Off map/directions, also below.  Carpooling is encouraged.
Prefer to take the bus?  The North County Transit District (NCTD) Bus #101 has stops directly in front of the Salk Institute, as indicated on the parking map.  You can find the #101 bus schedule here.  You can also plan your bus trip to the Salk Institute and get directions from your specific starting location by using the SD Metropolitan Transit System Planner tool at
