Conference “Neurogenesis from development to adulthood in health and disease”

The adult brain consists of billions of neurons allowing for a plethora of brain functions. Notably, a large number of neuropsychiatric diseases are associated with early alterations of neural networks. Thus, understanding the process of neurogenesis, the life-long formation of neurons, is of fundamental importance to identify novel strategies for therapeutic approaches.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together experts in neurosciences to discuss these exciting new developments at Monte Verità.

Monte Verità rises on the hills above Ascona and Lake Maggiore, and has always been a magnetic pole of convergence of ideas, trends, experiments and historical figures. Immersed in the quiet and green of a park of more than 7 hectares, with an incomparable view of Lake Maggiore, it offers visitors a unique experience.
