SEPTEMBER 22-24, 2021


Registration and Abstract submission remain OPEN!

In one of the first all in-person neuroscience meetings after the long ordeal of the pandemic, The University of Texas at Dallas will host the 7th Biennial Conference on Resting State Brain Connectivity, the major forum for scientific discourse and interaction on human brain connectivity. The conference will provide early-stage and seasoned investigators great opportunities to present and discuss their own work, and to keep up to date with the latest developments in the neuroscience of the resting brain.

This year’s program will highlight many exciting new directions this field is taking as well as updates on more established lines of work. We have an exciting lineup of program and keynote speakers.

EARLY-BIRD Registration and Abstract submission deadlines have been extended!
