Lectures

  • Plenary Lecture Neural mechanisms of social reward
    Robert C. Malenka, MD, PhD
    (Nancy Pritzker Professor in Stanford University School of Medicine)


    Date August 30 / Time 11:20-12:10 / Room Hall 1 & Hall 2
    Chair Hyewhon Rhim (Korea Institute of Science and Technology)
    Dr. Malenka’s contributions over the last three decades have laid the groundwork for a more sophisticated understanding of the adaptations in synaptic communication which underlie all forms of normal and pathological behaviour. He has been at the forefront of helping to apply the knowledge gained from basic neuroscience research to the treatment and prevention of major neuropsychiatric disorders.

    Selected Honors

    • MD-PhD, Stanford University School of Medicine (1983)
    • Professor & Associate Chair, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences (1999-present)
    • Deputy Director, Stanford Neurosciences Institute (2008-present)
    • Member, National Academy of Medicine (2004)/Fellow, American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2005)
    • Society for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award (1993)/’NARSAD Goldman-Rakic Prize for Outstanding Cognitive Neuroscience Research (2010)/Member, National Academy of Sciences (2011)/Society for Neuroscience Julius Axelrod Prize (2016)
  • Keynote Lecture I The neurobiology of pain processing; new therapies on the horizon
    Allan Basbaum, PhD
    (Professor and Chair at UCSF School of Medicine)


    Date August 30 / Time 13:10-13:50 / Room Hall 1 & Hall 2
    Chair Uhtaek Oh (Korea Institute of Science and Technology)
    Allan Basbaum is an world-renowned neuroanatomist who has dedicated elucidating structure and function of sensory nervous system at the spinal cord as well as supra-spinal cord levels in the context of nerve injury and pain. Especially, his research on pain over the last 4 decades has contributed immensely to build our current knowledge on neurons and neural circuits mediating pain and itch information processing.

  • Keynote Lecture II Epigenetic and epitrancriptomic mechanisms in neurogenesis and plasticity
    Hongjun Song, PhD
    (Professor of Perelman School of Medicine University of Pennsylvania)


    Date August 31 / Time 11:40-12:20 / Room Hall 1 & Hall 2
    Chair Bong-Kuin Kaang (Seoul National University)
    Dr. Hongjun Song is well known for his research on how neural stem cells in the developing and mature brain are regulated by intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms at the molecular, cellular, and neuronal circuit levels, and his laboratory has reported numerous of key findings that have influenced the field. His laboratory investigates mechanisms underlying normal neurodevelopment and neuropsychiatric disorders using animal models, iPS technology and human brain organoids. His laboratory currently focuses on epigenetic and epitranscriptomic
    mechanisms and their functions in the mammalian nervous system.

  • Keynote Lecture III Mechanistic dissection of gut-microbiota brain interaction
    Mauro Costa-Mattioli, PhD
    (Associate Professor at Baylor College of Medicine)


    Date August 31 / Time 17:20-18:00 / Room Hall 1 & Hall 2
    Chair Hee-Sup Shin (Institute for Basic Science)
    Dr. Costa-Mattioli’s current research seeks to understand what happens in the brain when a memory is formed. He is also interested in understanding the specific circuits and/or molecular pathways that are primarily targeted in neurological disorders affecting learning and memory, and how they can be restored.
    In a new line of research, his group seeks to understand how changes in the gut microbiota influence crucial central nervous system functions via the microbiota-gut- brain axis in both health and disease.
