    This webinar is exclusive for SfN members. Please log in or link your FENs membership for access. All living organisms are able to implement adaptation mechanisms that allow them to survive even in the most extreme conditions. Cerebral ischemia represents an extreme condition in which CNS cells are called upon to automate adaptations that ensure survival. This concept is exemplified and perfectly reproduced in the tolerance induced by the phenomena of ischemic conditioning. Ischemic conditioning is used to group together a few different stressors or interventions able to confer resistance to a deleterious brain event as an adaptive biological process. Ischemic conditioning through the exposure to a sub-threshold insult as above mentioned, can confer neuroprotection both if conditioning stimuli is applied before, as preconditioning stimulus, or if it is delivered after the harmful ischemia, as occurs in postconditioning. Over the years, several molecular pathways have been proposed as plausible mechanisms to explain the adaptive phenomena induced by hypoxia. This webinar will discuss mechanisms involved in post-ischemic brain adaptation . The knowledge of these mechanisms may provide information to bring light on those molecular pathways involved in brain protection. In this webinar, speakers will cover points including: Post-ischemic brain remodeling and plasticity, evaluating pathomechanisms contributing to secondary brain injury and searching strategies that promote neurological recovery in the post-acute stroke phase. What the function of peripheral events in inducing brain tolerance to stroke. The plethora of factors that can influence the tolerance phenomenon occurring during pre- and post-conditioning Why it is important to escape a neuron-centric view and to consider the role of other cell types, including small vessels, in the mechanism of brain adaptation.

  14. SfN enthusiastically announces that Neuroscience 2021 will be held in an inclusive hybrid format. Neuroscience 2021 is one annual meeting with two experiences: for the first time, a four-day full virtual program (November 8-11, 2021) including reimagined virtual posters, and a four-day full in-person program in Chicago at McCormick Place Convention Center (November 13–16, 2021). “We look forward to finally celebrating SfN’s 50th annual meeting with our colleagues, both in person or online. The past year has underscored the importance of science, and I encourage everyone to consider submitting their abstracts to this meeting,” SfN President Barry Everitt said. “The SfN Council felt it is vital to gather the field to conduct the dynamic scientific exchange that has been sorely missing in the past year. By offering engagement both virtually and in person, we are able to share science as well as offer opportunities to network and gather for those who are ready and able to travel in person.” Knowing travel may continue to be restricted and uncertain, and wishing SfN to be as accessible and inclusive as possible, the addition of a full virtual schedule will enhance participation and promote SfN’s commitment to advancing scientific exchange globally. “To once again conduct our vibrant Annual Meeting is simply critical to the continued progress of the field and led to the unanimous decision by the SfN Council to make the 2021 meeting a hybrid opportunity,” Everitt said. Registration for Neuroscience 2021 will include full access to both the in-person and virtual portions of the meeting. All poster presenters will submit virtual posters regardless of whether they will also present in person. Abstract submissions from across the world are highly encouraged. “The Annual Meeting Focus Group, led by the Program Committee Chairs, has rethought the digital experience, specifically virtual posters, and we are looking forward to inventive and creative engagement to allow the largest group possible to participate in scientific exchange worldwide,” Everitt said. To encourage dynamic scientific exchange, each virtual poster presentation will include a live, interactive 60-minute group discussion with 7-10 authors in an assigned session during the virtual experience in November. All poster presenters will be asked to include a PDF slide deck and also record a five-minute video or audio presentation for their virtual poster. “The reimagining of the virtual posters invigorates a part of the program that has proven especially challenging in a virtual format,” said 2020–2021 SfN Program Chair Sheena Josselyn. “By creating up to 1,000 live online discussions among those with related research, we are looking to expand digital networking and collaboration opportunities within the field, in addition to the rich networking and discussion that will take place in person in Chicago. I encourage all members of the field around the world to consider submitting an abstract and connecting with colleagues new and old, as we are confident that this opportunity will serve to enhance robust scientific collaboration.” Abstract submission opens July 6 and closes July 15 – regardless of whether attendance will be virtual or in person. Meeting registration opens August 3 for members that renewed by February 15, August 4 for the full membership, and August 9 for nonmembers. More details are available on www.sfn.org/neuroscience2021.

    Original air date: April 7, 2021 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET More details about viewing this webinar are available on Neuronline. Poor mental health among academics and researchers has long been a problematic and pervasive issue but, until recently, it has largely been ignored or even denied. Recent research (Evans 2018, Woolston 2019) and the increased pressure of the COVID19 pandemic, however, have rendered mental health in academia an urgent topic. Dragonfly Mental Health, a nonprofit dedicated to cultivating excellent mental health among academics worldwide, will lead a webinar that aims to destigmatize mental health struggles among SfN members, discuss the prevalence and manifestation of various mental illnesses among neuroscientists, and start the conversation about how we as a community can better support ourselves and each other.

    Thank you everyone for joining us today! I hope we were able to help with some of your questions. Working on research sustainability is not easy and might feel overwhelming sometimes, but please remember this is the right road! These are a couple of posts I wrote about the subject, which might help with your interest in making research more sustainable! https://network.febs.org/posts/environmentally-sustainable-research-is-the-only-way-forward https://network.febs.org/posts/what-you-can-do-to-make-your-lab-greener
  26. Thanks for joining us today, please do keep going, it sometimes feels like a hard struggle but once you have a small break through it gets easier.
  27. Yeah. I feel the same way. I am also a post-doc and it seems hard (if not impossible) to actually make a difference, particularly if you are under immense pressure/stress and your lab has a particular way of doing things. One thing that I do is to think about my next career move. If the goal is to run your own research group, think about how you would set up a new lab. What sustainability goals/actions would you emphasize in this new group? It is sometimes easier to implement change when you are starting fresh than to steer a huge ship with momentum in one direction. But, it may be helpful to go into the new position with a list of goals ahead of time because it is very easy to get swept down the same path.

    Hello Cynthia, I think the first thing one could do (as a grad student, postdoc, technician...) is to find out whether there is already a sustainability initiative in their research center or a department in charge of sustainability (such as health and safety) and if so, join the team! In any case, try to create a Green team, as working in a community might be easier. Take a look here: https://network.febs.org/posts/what-you-can-do-to-make-your-lab-greener Hope this helps!
  29. I can tell you what we are doing at the Francis Crick Institute. All animal bedding is taken for composting and used for building traffic circles and roundabouts. We also have some projects in progress, working with our building management team to reduce Air flow, which does not impact the animal containers but the room itself. All our animal incubators have a separate air flow so a small tweak to the room airflow will save us £xxx,xxx in energy bills and reduce our carbon emissions.
