The 5th Annual world-renowned Neuroscience virtual conference in now available On Demand!.

The human brain is thought to be the most complex object in research. A hundred billion neurons, close to a quadrillion connections between them, and scientists are trying to figure out how it all fits together.  Neuroscience aims to understand how a single organ can control the entire body, from immune response to heart rate, from movement to learning and feeling. Neuroscientists work within a much wider scope than ever before, studying the cellular, functional, evolutionary, computational, molecular, cellular and medical aspects of the nervous system. And with new tools and technologies constantly being developed, the growth of knowledge of the brain is increasing exponentially.

Neuroscience 2017 (free to attend) aimed to help advance knowledge of the brain and nervous system by bringing together research scientists, principal investigators, lab directors, clinicians and medical professionals from around the world to discuss and learn about the latest research and technologies in the field.

Following are the topics for this years Neuroscience event:

  • Sensory Motor

From January 1998 to December 2001, Dr. Hatsopoulos was an Assistant Professor of Research in the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University. Dr. Hatsopoulos completed two postdoctoral research fellowships, one in the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University and the other in the Computational Neuroscience Program at the California Institute of Technology. Dr. Hatsopoulos completed his B.A. in Physics from Williams College in 1984, his M.S. in Psychology in 1991 and his Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from Brown University in 1992. In 2001, he co-founded a company, Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, which took the basic scientific research he and his colleagues conducted to develop neural prosthesis technology to assist people with severe motor disabilities. His research focuses on the neural basis of motor control and learning. He is investigating what features of motor behavior are encoded and how this information is represented in the collective activity of neuronal ensembles in the motor cortex. He is also interested in how these representations change as motor learning occurs. To answer these questions, the electrical discharge of many motor cortical neurons is simultaneously recorded using multi-electrode arrays and correlated with motor behavior. The encoding properties of individual motor cortical neurons are being studied to determine how these single cell properties relate to higher-order representations involving groups of neurons. The possibility that changes in functional connectivity among neurons may occur during motor learning is also being explored.
                    • Narayanan Kasthuri, PhD
