The symposium was concluded by Prof. Dr. Sandoghdar, who extended his gratitude to the speakers for rendering a fascinating overview on research projects at the forefront of Systems Neuroscience, with each lecture giving rise to lively and often far-ranging discussions with the audience. In his understanding, the symposium also called upon physics to assume a primary role in devising new means of insight into the workings of the brain at all levels of investigation.
