This Satellite Symposium brings together many of the leaders in the field of imaging to present recent results and developments in imaging. The symposium will have speakers working on cellular imaging (confocal and multiphoton imaging), whole field imaging (MRI and PET) as well as optogenetic techniques.

The ANS 2012 Satellite Symposium on Imaging will take place at the Queensland Brain Institute on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January 2012. There is no charge to attend the symposium, but registration is required for catering purposes. To register contact  Sue Campbell  email: s.campbell4@uq.edu.au  phone 3346 3328.
