8th Annual Regional Neurosciences Conference and State of the Art Stroke SummitSep 6 - 7 , 2018Atlantic City, NJThe conference will discuss advances and new technologies in comprehensive stroke and neurological and neurosurgical care. Covering seven specialty areas within the field of neurosciences, the two day regional conference provides an elaborate learning experience on topics ranging from neuro oncology, stroke neurology, spine, endovascular neurosurgery, tele-neurology, neurological critical care, and pediatric neurology. Improving patient outcomes for stroke requires a multifaceted approach across the continuum, from the pre-hospital setting up to and including rehabilitation. The summit is designed to improve the knowledge, competence and performance of healthcare providers engaged in the daily care of patients who suffer from stroke and stroke-related conditions and diseases, in order to prevent a gap in knowledge about existing information and technology.
Virginia-Nordic Precision Neuroscience II, 2018: From discovery to translation and innovationSep 19 - 21 , 2018Oslo
The vision of the VNPN is to foster advancement in neuroscience-based precision medicine, including diagnosis and treatment founded on in-depth knowledge of brain mechanisms and their variation depending on genetics/epigenetics and environment. This purpose shall be served by a trans-Atlantic collaboration, enhancing innovation and commerce both in the USA and in the Nordic countries.
The meeting is open to all. It is ideal for students at Master and PhD level, and particularly for physicians and other professionals specializing in brain disorders.
Workshop in EEG Frequency-tagging in Visual Neuroscience: Conceptual & Technical AdvancesSep 24 - 27 , 2018Reno, Nevada
From the first single-channel recording of responses to simple visual stimuli, to the present use of sophisticated stimulators comprised of complex stimuli and high-density EEG recording arrays, periodic stimulation methods are starting to be applied in a broad range of scientific and applied settings, in particular in vision research.
The purpose of this workshop is to describe the fundamental stimulation and analysis protocols for this fast periodic stimulation mode in vision and to illustrate these principles through research findings across a range of applications in visual neuroscience, including clinical and developmental populations.
