Neural Stem Cells: Development and Brain Repair
20 May 2017 - 27 May 2017 • Siena, Italy
Abstract:
A number of neurological diseases are characterized by the loss of individual neuronal subtypes and/or specialized glial cells. The ongoing effort is to understand the underlying pathophysiology in an attempt to identify suitable drug targets. Opportunities have emerged within the stem cell field. Unprecedented advances have been made in our understanding of stem cells and through them much can be learned about the physiology and pathophysiology of the cells that degenerate in different brain disorders with the ultimate goal of delivering therapeutically relevant stem cells that could ameliorate the clinical outcome. The Advanced Course will bring together a collection of investigators who are at the forefront of their field and will showcase research at the frontiers of neural stem cells for neurorepair.

Learning and Memory: Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms
28 May 2017 - 04 Jun 2017 • Siena, Italy
Abstract:
Recent ground-breaking developments in neuroscience, such as optogenetics, in vivo 2-photon confocal microscopy, head mounted microscopes, powerful new developments in modeling, behavioral neuroscience approaches, and sophisticated brain imaging tools, have changed dramatically studies of memory. Most importantly, these developments have fostered interdisciplinary studies that led to integrated molecular, cellular, systems, cognitive and behavioral explanations of how memories are allocated, formed, consolidated, reconsolidated and retrieved. These studies have also led to mechanistic cross-disciplinary studies of memory disorders, which in some cases led to the development of targeted treatments that are changing how we imagine treating the considerable health burden associated with this large class of conditions.

Sleep and Cognition
08 Jul 2017 - 15 Jul 2017 • Siena, Italy
Abstract:
This Advanced Course will cut across multiple fields of sleep studies and will feature dedicated sessions addressing important emerging areas. Emphasis will be placed on cutting-edge methods and hypotheses for understanding sleep and its effects on cognitive functions, and on how neurophysiological/genetic/imaging approaches can shed light on the functions of sleep and its essential role in maintaining and preserving vigilance, performance, learning and memory. Some of the topics that will be covered include the following: 1) the link between sleep and brain plasticity, with in depth discussion of the ultrastructural, molecular, electrophysiological and behavioral evidence linking synaptic plasticity and learning during wake with sleep need; 2) the discovery of novel brain circuits and cell types involved in sleep regulation; 3) the role of sleep in learning, memory consolidation as well as forgetting; 4) the effects of sleep loss on brain cognitive functions and how these effects depend on a complex interaction between homeostatic and circadian factors; 5) sleep and dreaming, and how the application of new behavioral paradigms and high-density EEG can contribute to the understanding of the occurrence of conscious experiences during sleep. The course will be an interactive, multidisciplinary forum in which participants will discard outdated notions, gain an appreciation for the latest thinking, and develop insights that will help navigate the complexity of sleep research.

Cognitive Decine and Aging
01 Sep 2017 - 08 Sep 2017 • Siena, Italy
Abstract:
Age is the greatest risk factor for multiple neurodegenerative diseases. In that context, the prevailing perception of the aging brain is of linear decline across multiple systems. A diametrically different perspective is that the aging brain is a dynamic adaptive organ that initiates multiple survival systems throughout the aging process. While these adaptations in the aging brain are for the majority of persons beneficial, they can, in vulnerable populations, lead to increased risk of neurodegenerative disease. The systems biology of transition states in normal aging and neurodegeneration provides insights into mechanisms of disease risk and disease progression. Risk of multiple neurodegenerative diseases can emerge during neuroendocrine transitions of aging when gene networks undergo shifts in activation and expression. These risk networks underlie the prodromal phase of neurodegenerative disease. Later, transition states typify the progressive nature of multiple neurodegenerative diseases. Risk for and progression of Alzheimer’s disease are exemplars of both risk that can emerge during neuroendocrine transitions and the transition states of disease progression.

Innovations and State of the Art In Dementia Research
07 Sep 2017 - 09 Sep 2017 • Rome, Italy
Abstract:
Innovinc International invites you to participate in the “Innovations and State of the Art In Dementia Research” will takes place on Sep 07 - 09, 2017, Rome, Italy with the theme "Delivering on dementia: new models of care". Dementia is a national challenge and has ramifications for the health and social care system, as well as wider society. Dementia mostly affects aged people; Dementia is a disorder, more often it is of chronic or progressive nature, developed by an assortment of brain illnesses that influence thinking, memory, behaviour and ability to perform daily activities. Dementia is overwhelming for the general population who have it, as well as for their caregivers and families.
