Caltech is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 5th iteration of the international Human Single Neuron conference which, due to current circumstances, will take place as an online-only meeting on Nov 13 2020 in place of the originally planned 2-day conference at the California Institute of Technology on Nov 12-13 2020. This meeting is the successor to the previous four highly successful meetings (2011 at NYU, 2014 at Johns Hopkins, 2016 at Caltech, 2018 at Caltech). The purpose of this meeting is to bring together the key people working in the field to talk about progress, challenges, technologies, ethical implications, applications, hardware, software, scientific questions and clinical considerations. The focus is on microelectrode recordings enabled by neurosurgical procedures and how human neurophysiological recordings relate to advances in our understanding of neural circuit function in rodents and macaques. The focus will be on new discoveries made since our previous meeting. We anticipate that this virtual edition of the meeting will be an excellent opportunity to hear from both established and new investigators about the latest discoveries and developments in the field from both a scientific and technical perspective, including updates from the BRAIN Initiative Research on Humans consortium.
