Wiring Together: Neuroplasticity in the brain
KCL NeuroSoc is very excited to announce its 4th annual one-day conference titled “Wiring Together: Neuroplasticity in the Brain”!
This year’s conference is focusing on neuroplasticity and the spectacular changes that take place in the brain from a molecular and cellular level to a cognitive and behavioural level. In order to better outline the numerous facets of neuroplasticity, we have classified the programme into five categories:
- plasticity in neuronal networks,
There will be 6 KEYNOTE LECTURES covering topics such as: - mechanisms of cerebral cortical plasticity - fMRI neurofeedback training for enhancing neuroplasticity in Huntington’s Disease - how memory mechanisms are altered in disease states - restoring hand function after paralysis through closed-loop control of spinal cord stimulation - growth cone pathfinding - altered connectivity in the spinal cord and brainstem in neuropathic pain. Also, participants will have the amazing opportunity to attend 4 WORKSHOPS during the day and showcase their research in a poster session during the lunch interval, with prizes to be awarded to the best 3 posters. We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
