Neurodevelopmental disorders are a group of different conditions in
which the development of the central nervous system is disturbed and
that often have lifelong consequences. Such developmental brain
dysfunction can manifest as neuropsychiatric problems (Autism Spectrum
Disorders, schizophrenia, fragile-X syndrome, down syndrome…) or
impaired motor function, learning, language or non-verbal communication.
Numerous developmental processes can go awry, sometimes simultaneously,
affecting the generation of the appropriate diversity of neural cell
types, their migration to correct sites in the brain and the
establishment of precise connectivity with target cells, leading to
complex brain and sensory dysfunction(s) and neurological diseases.
this 3 day symposium, experts from different areas of developmental
neuroscience, human neuropsychology, epidemiology, brain imaging and
genetics & epigenetics as well as clinicians will address the
current state of neurodevelopmental disorders research, and its
challenges for human health. We hope that by integrating
neurodevelopmental perspectives and basic, translational and clinical
approaches, this meeting will promote discussions and exchanges, and a
new understanding of the complexity of these pathologies.

About Bordeaux Neurocampus international conferences
The Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences are a series of
3-day neuroscience meetings that take place every year in autumn at
Bordeaux University, France. The 2020 edition has been postponed to Spring 2020.
The purpose of the conferences is to present and discuss
recent findings in a topic field in Neuroscience, bringing together
leading international experts and young researchers. The maximum number
of participants is 250, including invited speakers.
