From genes to behavior to ecology: Integrative and comparative approaches to electroreception and electrogenesis research
Research on electroreception and electrogenesis has provided key findings of general significance that integrate organismal biology at successive levels of organization. Research within this community investigates causation from genes to molecules, cells, and circuits that produce ecologically important animal behaviors. This meeting is expected to generate new ideas and directions for researchers working on electrosensory systems, particularly on integrating genomic approaches towards building better understanding of how genes control sensory processing, perception, and behavior. Moreover, the results presented at the meeting are expected to contribute to progress in neurobiology, neuroethology, evolution, and other fields of research.
We plan to follow a general two-day format that incorporates 18 oral presentations (some 30 min and most 20 min) and 5 poster presentations . In addition, we anticipate offering a catered lunch and two coffee sessions . This will take place on July 14th from 8am - 6pm . We anticipate that this timeframe, while tight, will accommodate the necessary time for socializing, networking as well as providing cutting-edge scientific content.
This satellite meeting is preceded by Meetings in Gif sur Yvette in 1978 and 1985 and as a satellite of the ICN meeting at Montreal (1992), San Diego (1998), Bonn (2001), Vancouver (2007), Maryland (2012), and Montevideo (2016).
