Labroots is excited to present the 6th annual event in the Neuroscience Virtual Event Series. Neuroscience 2018 aims to explore the mechanisms of neural function from the molecular to the network level in health and disease. World renowned experts and thought leaders discussed the dynamics of brain function at various levels of consciousness, the mechanisms of functional networks and their modulation, and neuronal plasticity in recovery, as well as therapeutic approaches for symptomological amelioration.
Speakers included Harvard professors Dr. Jeremy D. Schmahmann, Dr. Emery Brown, and Dr. Larry Benowitz; Albert Einstein College of Medicine professor and chairman Emad Eskander, Stanford professor Dr. Natalie Rasgon, USC professor Dr. Terence D. Sanger; and Federal University of Pernambuco professor Dr. Mauro Copelli.
Neuroscience 2018 main topics included:
LabRoots virtual conferences allow you to participate in a global setting, with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those sections in which you are interested and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so.
Produced on a new, more robust platform, you can watch, learn and connect during this conference on mobile devices easier than ever before. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots most popular shirts
By participating in this virtual event and watching webcast presentations, you can earn Free Continuing Education (CE) and/or Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. To earn educational credits, you must view an entire presentation.
