1st International Symposium on Transient Dynamic Brain States, Tübingen, Germany
The human brain undergoes a continuous transition between functional states allowing for fast and efficient adaptation to the environment. These dynamic brain states are essential for normal brain function, but when disturbed can be associated with severe neurological and psychiatric disorders.
Latest advances in neurotechnology can be used to monitor, analyze and modulate dynamic brain states. Implantable and non-invasive brain-machine interfaces (BMIs), for example, use neuronal signals to control external devices and machines. Electric and magnetic brain stimulation is applied in various CNS disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, depression or chronic pain. Merging our growing understanding of transient dynamic brain states with most recent developments in neurotechnology will open new doors for more individualized and effective treatment strategies for neurological and psychiatric disorders.
From March 17-18, 2015, the first International Symposium on Transient Dynamic Brain States will take place in Tübingen, Germany. The aim of this satellite symposium to the 59. Annual Meeting of the DGKN is to address
- Advanced tools for assessing and modulating transient dynamic brain states
- Transient dynamic brain states in neurodevelopment and the context of neurological and mental disorders
- Brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) and brain stimulation for modulation of transient dynamic brain states
