ReproNim SFN Training  
Friday, November 2, 2018 - Saturday, November 3, 2018 - All Day
University of California San Diego

An increasing body of evidence point to some issues in reproducibility in biomedical or life sciences, raising concerns in the scientific community. ReproNim has developed a curriculum that will give the students the information, tools and practices to perform repeatable and efficient research and a map of where to find the resources for deeper practical training.

This training workshop will introduce material on the key aspects of reproducible brain imaging and will orient attendees using a hands on and practical experience to conduct neuroimaging analyses, using the next generation of tools.  By the end of this course, the student will be aware of training materials and concepts necessary to perform reproducible research in neuroimaging. The student will be able to reuse these materials to conduct local workshops and training and be able to customize the training for their specific scenario.

ANCDS 2018 Scientific and Business Meeting  
Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - All Day
Boston, Massachusetts

ANCDS is proud to announce the 2018 Scientific and Business Meeting on November 14 in Boston, MA. Our theme this year is Advances in Neurological Rehabilitation with a focus on neuroplasticity and the use of technology during recovery from aphasia and motor speech disorders.

The Education and Standards Committee has convened an expert group of clinician-scientists to present the most recent research findings and advances in clinical application that will appeal to clinicians and researchers alike. Our invited speakers will provide updates on neuroplasticity across the age range, neuroplasticity and rehabilitation in recovery from aphasia, and the use of technology and engineering principles to assess and treat motor speech disorders. The goal is to promote a rich dialogue regarding advances in neurological rehabilitation that may improve and maximize treatment outcomes in aphasia and motor speech disorders. We are delighted to welcome you to Boston and look forward to seeing you at the 2018 ANCDS Scientific and Business Meeting. More info coming soon!

3rd Mapping Course  
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 2:30 PM - Friday, November 23, 2018 3:00 PM
University Hospital of Bellvitge (Barcelona)

After more than 20 years of experience in using the intraoperative mapping techniques and neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring for the resection of brain lesions located in supratentorial eloquent areas, the Neurosurgery Department in Bellvitge Hospital is pleased to offer a full course which comprises the anatomic and theoretical basis for the implementation of these techniques. It is mainly a practical course which arises from the department's experience. It has been designed in the "how I do it" format, with the participation of the corresponding professionals of all the fields implied in the brain mapping process: from the preoperative planning to the surgery, and even the postoperative follow up. There will be some practical sessions (white matter fiber tractography using DTI for intraoperative navigation, fiber dissection and CUSA ultrasonic aspirator usage course both in cadaveric specimens) and two live broadcast surgeries with the application of the subject taught.

ANS 2018 ASM  
Monday, December 3, 2018 - Thursday, December 6, 2018 - All Day
Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, QLD

ANS is an organisation which enables interactions and links between the laboratory and clinic, between different disciplines, between experienced and young scientists and between neuroscientists and the public to embrace the wonder of, and challenges posed by, the human brain and nervous system. As a not-for-profit association, we greatly appreciate any support in spreading the word about our annual conference to interested parties across the Australasian region.
