Neural Dynamics and Brain Health Conference and Workshop

Conference
Our conference will present cutting-edge research on basic neural mechanisms informed by structural and functional neuroimaging. This year's broad theme discusses healthy and impaired brain function across the lifespan and features research on several disorders that affect the lives and well-being of millions of people within Canada and worldwide.

Sessions will cover:

  • Comprehensive descriptions of neural dynamics across the lifespan in health and disease
  • Exclusive insight into how brain simulation of brain damage caused by disorders, such as epilepsy or stroke, can guide treatment
  • Avenues for healthy brain aging: the effect of exercise and music on the brain.

Please note: For the two-day conference, registrants are expected to make their own lunch arrangements. For the post-conference workshop at Baycrest, lunch will be provided.

Workshop
Researchers from different backgrounds will learn the nuts and bolts of this one-of-a-kind, open-source neuroinformatics platform, The Virtual Brain (TVB). This simulation environment will assist researchers in studying the brain and potential treatments for various neurological disorders. This is a rare opportunity to learn directly from TVB founders and hear about their latest advances in using this technology.
