Unlocking the Brain - The 2nd FRIS-TFC Joint Symposium

The brain defines us as individuals.

It is the most complicated system in the universe, its functions performed via each individual neuron and glial cell.

While generations of neuroscientists have dedicated themselves to unravelling the detailed mechanisms underlying brain function, modern science demands more than a biological approach.

On January 21, a symposium hosted by the Frontier Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences (FRIS) and the Tohoku Forum for Creativity (TFC) will bring together experts from a range of fields including chemistry, physics, material sciences, electronics and engineering to discuss the mysteries of the brain. Entrance to the seminar is free but registration is required.

Date: Monday, January 21
Time: 2:00-6:20p.m. (Social gathering at 6:20~8:00p.m.)
Venue: TOKYO ELECTRON House of Creativity (MAP), Katahira Campus, Tohoku University
