2023 NeuroNex Annual Meeting
‘From Octopus to Macaque: The Wondrous Challenges of Diverse Nervous Systems’
November 15 & 16, 2023
Washington DC Metro Area
This meeting will explore how different animals have diverse types of intelligence, and how the corresponding differences in their nervous systems may help to illuminate the mechanisms that mediate cognition in humans. We will explore the remarkable behaviors of octopus, crows and primates, and the challenges to tool-makers to extend our current technologies to these nonrodent species. We will also explore the similarities and differences between marmosets and macaques, as marmosets are becoming an important new animal model for the exploration of higher cognition.
