This year's 2015 World Congress of The Society for Brain Mapping & Therapeutics included nearly 600 talks regarding the latest developments in clinical translational neuroscience.
With medical imaging vital to brain mapping advancements, NexGenic was proud to sponsor this growing community of scientists, neurosurgeons, physicians, and engineers.
NexGenic Co-founder Stephan Erberich, PhD, presented a talk entitled "Medical Image Communication in Research and Clinical Applications."
Another great presentation regarding the latest imaging technologies in Brain Tumors and Alzheimer's Disease was given by Prof. Keith L. Black, Founding Chairman of Neurosurgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center (View here: https://player.vimeo.com/video/121971614).
I believe their are plans to have all 600 talks from the 2015 World Congress available for viewing on the SBMT University Channel. Be sure to check them out, as learning from and discussing with the attendee's was fascinating.
The scientific brain mapping community is set to rapidly develop in the coming years with President Obama's ambitious 'BRAIN' initiative -- Creating 100's of millions of dollars in brain-related grant awards from five participating federal agencies (NIH, NSF, DARPA, FDA, IARPA)
As Dr. Kieth Black states at the very end of his talk above, "We are approaching a very exciting time, an inflection point...where research has the potential to make a real impact to treat the disorders that affect the human brain."
It's certainly an exciting moment to be participating in this burgeoning field of brain mapping!
