Society for Neuroscience 2015 Symposium Brain Stimulation Based Neural Circuit Modeling: Linking levels of analysis
Location: Fairmont, Chicago
This satellite symposium at the 2015 Society for Neuroscience Meeting in Chicago, IL, brought together basic neuroscientists, computational modelers, and clinical investigators to discuss how to connect large scale computational modeling with translational neuroscience. The overall goal was to increase understanding of how to improve basic network organization using non-invasive brain stimulation and enhance cognitive capabilities in clinical disorders. Increasing our mechanistic understanding of how weak global changes interact with large-scale neural dynamics will also facilitate the design of more effective and safer neuromodulatory devices for the improvement of brain function in health and disease.
