This open symposium features internationally recognized scientists who will present advances in our understanding of human brain function in health and disease. Recent progress in the field with the use of different experimental systems, gene technologies and brain imaging will be highlighted. This symposium is organized by the Swedish Society for Medical Genetics and Science for Life Laboratory.
