Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders

Cell-NERF symposium on neurotechnologies


Time: Sunday, September 30, 2018, 12:00 am
Location: Leuven
Registration: Abstract submission & registration

NERF teams up with Cell Symposia to organize an axciting meeting in Leuven that will broadly focus on neurotechnologies for research and neuroprosthetic applications, covering advances in molecular, optical, and electrophysiological approaches for measuring and manipulating neural circuits.

Recent technological advances from fields as diverse as gene and protein engineering, optics, photonics, chemistry, materials science, nanoscience, electrophysiology, and more have helped propel forward our understanding of the genetic, molecular, and physiological mechanisms that contribute to the development and function of the central nervous system. We will bring together leading experts at the forefront of neurotechnology development to discuss the next generation of tools and methods. They will present their latest work and share their thoughts more broadly on how the field as a whole might tackle critical challenges.

Themes

Neural recordings: imaging and electrophysiological approaches
Prosthetics and brain-machine interfaces
Optical manipulation of circuits and cells
Material science and nanotechnology
Design of new probes and sensors
Neuromodulation
Cell and tissue engineering
