General Information:

This Biomag 2012 Satellite Event is planned for a full day. There are five key disease themes: traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, Alzheimer’s disease (AD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and pain. The two cross-cutting themes relate to MEG strengths and advances in imaging of neural networks and functional connectivity.

 

Workshop Objectives:
  1. to highlight emerging clinical applications beyond traditional ones (e.g., epilepsy and presurgical mapping);
  2. to foster the utilization and development of network and connectivity approaches as a MEG technology advantage; and
  3. to identify common challenges to overcome in order to integrate emerging applications into best clinical practices. These challenges include:

a.       diagnostic biomarkers,

b.      clinical evaluation, and

c.       therapeutic monitoring for recovery/rehabilitation.
