SAVE THE DATE: Third Biennial Patricia Levy Zusman International Workshop on Neuroregeneration Symposium
Mar/03/21 @ 2:00 am – Mar/06/21 @ 11:00 am UTC
The application of neural stimulation technologies and computer interfaces for paralysis, neuroregenerationand psychiatric disorders has risen steadily. However, the field will be accelerated by a deeper molecular and physiological understanding of the mechanisms of neural plasticity. The neuroregeneration symposium seeks to unite expertise in these two disciplines from worm to man in six plenary sessions over two days chaired by prominent researchers and clinicians to drive a workshop-style discussion The speakers in each session are international leaders in computer interface and brain signaling, neuroplasticity, biomaterial engineering, and cutting edge regenerative model systems.
The proposed outcome for this symposium:
- Development of proposals and collaborations,
- An illustration and review of how activity changes the biology of neurons and
- A roadmap for exciting interdisciplinary intersections that should be explored to improve the function of BCI and similar technologies in the clinic.
