Learning and Memory: Cellular and Systemic Views
Dear speakers and participants,
Due to some new cases in Germany and following a detailed risk assessment we regret to finally inform you that we came to the conclusion that the Meeting has to be cancelled.
In the past few days, the number of Covid-19 infection cases in Germany has increased significantly. In the meantime, crisis teams have been set up at various levels. So far, it has been possible to isolate and treat infected persons in Germany and to provide close support to the persons in contact. It is now unclear, however, whether the chains of infection can be broken further.
In view of current developments, it is our responsibility to take measures to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infections, to ensure the well-being of all conference attendees and to minimize the risk of a discontinuation of business within our institute and the entire neuroscience site Magdeburg.
Thank you for your understanding, we apologize for the inconveniences that we are causing with this decision.

The city of Magdeburg is the capital of Saxony-Anhalt and it is located in the center of Germany. The former imperial city and today’s capital of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt fascinates its visitors and guests with its almost 1200 years of history. In its varied past Magdeburg experienced alternating times of heavy destruction and prosperity. Well preserved architectural monuments from all stylistic periods remind us of the city’s former splendour and wealth.

- Matthies Honorary Lecture
Hansjürgen Matthies was the doyen of Neuroscience in Magdeburg and founding director of the ancestor institute of the LIN, the Institute for Neurobiology and Brain Research of the Academy of Sciences of the GDR. He was also the initiator of the International Magdeburg Meetings on Learning & Memory, which took place for the first time in 1967. Prof. Matthies was a great scientist to whom we owe gratitude especially for his anticipatory and conceptual work on cellular memory storage mechanisms.
The 3rd Hansjürgen Matthies Honorary Lecture will be given by Tim Bliss, visiting professor at University College London, and at the Frontier Institutes of Science and Technology, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China, and Fellow of the Royal Society, London.
Tim Bliss is a renowned expert in brain plasticity processes and hippocampus physiology. In 1973, he and Terje Lømo published the first evidence of a Hebb-like synaptic plasticity event induced by brief tetanic stimulation, known as long-term potentiation (LTP).
Tim attended his first Magdeburg Meeting in 1985.
His lecture will be entitled "LTP: looking back and looking forward".
