5th International Brain Stimulation Conference

Published in Events.

Not related very much to Cryonics but still good to learn more about the brain:

Preliminary programme

The field of brain stimulation continues to undergo phenomenal growth. Brain stimulation methods are rapidly transforming research on brain mechanisms, from the molecular to the behavioral, and offer new approaches to therapeutics for brain disorders. In many ways, the field of brain stimulation represents a paradigm shift, augmenting and sometimes supplanting the dominant psychopharmacological approaches of the past several decades.

Currently, there are single theme meetings around the world that that are either technique or profession based or that limit the science of neuromodulation in other ways. This fifth international meeting, organized by Elsevier and sponsored by and integrated with the journal Brain Stimulation, continues in the tradition of the prior highly successful meetings – the first meeting was held in Singapore in 2015, then Barcelona in 2017, Vancouver in 2019 and most recently Charleston in 2021.

This meeting will continue the integrative multidisciplinary approach of the prior meetings. Basic scientists will attend lectures by engineers and psychiatrists. Cognitive neuroscientists will mingle with neurosurgeons and brain modelling physicists. This fertile cross-disciplinary meeting will provide ample opportunity to discuss the science that is driving advances in this field.

Topics will include:

Animal models
Brain-computer interface
Closed-loop or responsive stimulation
Combining brain stimulation methods with brain imaging
Computer modeling of brain stimulation methods
Deep brain stimulation (DBS)
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)
Focal pharmacology
Novel neuromodulation techniques
Plasticity of the nervous system
Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS)
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
Transcranial pulsed ultrasound (tPUS)
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS)
Basic neuroscience
Clinical neurological applications
Clinical psychiatric applications
Cognitive and affective neuroscience
