Time is running out to submit an abstract and register for the 7th Annual NeuroEngineering Symposium, which will feature several speakers from the Department of Neurobiology & Anatomy at McGovern Medical School.

The event will be held 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 26 at the BioScience Research Collaborative (6500 Main St., Houston, TX 77030) and will feature speakers from Rice University, Harvard University, University of Houston, Georgia Tech and Second Sight. The symposium consists of keynote speakers and talk sessions throughout the day and offers faculty, graduate students, post-doctoral students and trainees the opportunity to submit an abstract for a poster presentation which will be judged at the event. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 12.

Two faculty members from McGovern Medical School will also be speaking at the annual symposium and include Dr. Fabricio H. Do Monte, assistant professor of neurobiology and anatomy, and Dr. Michael Beierlein, associate professor of neurobiology and anatomy. Do Monte’s talk is titled “Elucidating the neural circuits of fear using optogenetic and single-unit recording tools” and Beierlein will focus on “Cholinergic control of cortical circuit activity”.
