Campus Biotech / Chemin des Mines 9, 1202 Genève, Switzerland
Please join us in Geneva, Switzerland June 24-25, 2016, for the next annual Brain Stimulation and Imaging Meeting. This satellite meeting will be held before the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) annual meeting.
BrainSTIM 2015 in Honolulu was one of the first ever meetings to focus on the combination of brain imaging and stimulation. This meeting had over 120 attendees, six keynote speakersand 17 speakers in four oral sessions derived from submitted abstracts. Based on the success of this initial meeting, BrainSTIM 2016 will combine keynote lectures by leaders in the fields of imaging and stimulation, talks selected from submitted abstracts, poster sessions and other opportunities to network and learn about this growing area of research. The meeting is meant to inform and educate everyone who may be interested in these topics, from novices to experts. The combination of brain stimulation and imaging may lead to better tests of causal hypotheses of brain function, a better understanding of the neural mechanisms of cognition and the mechanisms of brain stimulation, new methods to optimize brain stimulation and better treatments for brain and mental illness among other benefits.
Who: Keynote Speakers will be Leonardo Cohen, Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Michael Fox, Holly Lisanby (pending travel approval) and others. Additional speakers will be selected by committee from the pool of submitted abstracts. Abstracts not selected for oral presentations can be presented as posters. BrainSTIM 2015 is being organized jointly by Prof. Vincent Clark at the University of New Mexico and by Prof. Christoph Michel at l'Université de Genève.
Where: Campus Biotech Chemin des Mines 9, 1202 Genève, Switzerland
EEG monitoring with dry electrodes: the achievements of the ANDREA European project and future perspectives
Saturday, June 25, 2016- All Day
Geneva, Switzerland, Palexpo
Multichannel Electroencephalography (EEG) is widely used in clinical neurophysiology and neuroscientific research. EEG caps with 32 to 256 wet Silver/Silver-Chloride (Ag/AgCl) electrodes represent an often-used standard in the field. Reproducible electrode-skin contact for these electrodes is ensured by electrolyte gel or paste. Thus, these electrodes require specific mechanisms to apply and hold the gel at the electrode positions in the caps and require skilled personnel and a lengthy procedure to apply the EEG cap. Dry electrodes allow more degrees of freedom in the design and fabrication of EEG caps and can be self-applied without preparation.
This workshop, promoted by the partners of the ANDREA project (www.andreaproject.eu), is meant to inform and educate everyone who may be interested in these topics, from novices to experts. In particular, we will discuss novel multi-channel EEG caps with dry electrodes, and the most recent results obtained in this field within the ANDREA European project. Partners in the project and external experts will present the most recent advancements in sensors, caps and electronics, as well as data processing and artifact reduction algorithms. We will also give space for validation and application studies, for a demonstration of the novel ANDREA dry EEG system, and for discussing future perspective developments and applications.

In vivo MRS has evolved during the last 25 years in terms of localization quality and spatial resolution, acquisition speed, artifact suppression, number of detectable metabolites and quantification precision and has profited especially from improvements in B0 shim quality over the years and the significant increase of magnetic field strength that recently became available for in vivo investigations. Today it allows for non-invasive and non-ionizing determination of tissue concentrations and metabolic turn-over rates of various metabolites and compounds in animals or humans, is applied for clinical diagnostics and has established as an important tool for physiological research. In addition to late breaking results, this workshop examines the substantial advances in MRS acquisition, processing and analysis methods that have been achieved by the MRS community during the last 10 years. The workshop will feature invited scientific presentations, proffered papers, a poster session and discussion to work toward consensus in the areas of standardization, harmonization, quality assurance and guidance on best practices in MRS methodology. Target Audience This workshop is designed for MR Physicists including Ph.D. students; Postdoctoral Fellows and faculty who develop methodology and support clinical and physiological research based on MRS; as well as Psychiatrists, Neurologists, Neuro Radiologists, and Body Radiologists, who will benefit from the comprehensive overview and consensus discussions in order to define the state-of-the art of spectroscopy. The workshop is organized by the ISMRM MR Spectroscopy Study Group. Educational Objectives Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to: Describe current MRS(I) data acquisition methodology including sequences, pre-scans and hardware requirements; Discuss current MRS(I) data processing, reconstruction and analysis methods; Compare the pro´s and cons´s of advanced MRS and MRSI methods; Identify advanced MRS(I) methods that made it into application in clinical and basic research; Summarize minimum quality standards with regard to data acquisition, processing, analysis and reporting for physiological or clinical MRS studies; Support the ongoing consensus discussion about state-of-the-art, unmet needs and still existing limitations.

32nd International Conference of Alzheimer's Disease International
Wednesday, April 26, 2017- Saturday, April 29, 2017- All Day
Kyoto International Conference Center (ICC)
The annual conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) is taking place in Kyoto, Japan 26 – 29 April 2017 and hosted by Alzheimer’s Association Japan. The conference is one of the world’s largest conferences on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, featuring a range of international keynote speakers and a high standard of scientific and non-scientific content. The conference is taking place at the Kyoto International Conference Center (ICC) which continues to be a leader in Japanese conventions and a base for disseminating information and values from Kyoto to the wider world. Japan is easily accessible from the UK and continental Europe with over one hundred direct flights every week to four of Japan's 22 International Airports. Although Kyoto does not have its own airport, travellers can get to the city via Kansai International Airport and Osaka International Airport

The ECNP Congress is Europe's largest meeting on applied and translational neuroscience. Annually it brings together between 4,000 and 6,000 psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the science and treatment of disorders of the brain. Spanning the spectrum of human mood, behaviour, cognition and emotion – from basic science to clinical care – the ECNP Congress is Europe's premier showcase for new research, treatments and technologies in applied brain science.
