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.

The Neuroscience of Obesity
17 Sep 2017 - 24 Sep 2017 • Siena, Italy
Abstract:
Significant progress has been made in recent years in the understanding the role of the nervous system in obesity. Not only several different neuronal pathways, neurotransmitters and hormones have been identified as major players in the regulation of feeding and body weight, bu also energy balance in mammals is controlled by a complex network of interacting feedback mechanisms that involve peripheral organs in addition to higher brain centers. This Advanced Course will provide conceptual- and cutting edge technological framework for state-of-the-art of neuroscience on energy metabolism. The Faculty represents diverse expertise in molecular, cellular, circuit and behavioral approaches on contemporary questions regarding the role of the brain in systemic metabolism regulation and how the periphery affects complex brain functions via neuronal circuits and brain cells.

2nd International Conference on neurology and brain disorders
04 Jun 2018 - 06 Jun 2018 • Rome, Italy
Abstract:
On behalf of our organizing committee we take an enormous Pleasure in inviting you to attend the 2nd International Conference on Neurology and Brain Disorders (INBC 2018) in June 04-06- 2018. The Conference is designed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience of researchers, young inspired scientists, academicians, and industrialists education worldwide. INBC 2018 will continue this philosophy by encouraging the sharing of research and practice of neurology and brain disorders education as it impacts on the learning experience of students and qualified practitioners and the health and social care needs, and safety, of the individuals and communities it serves worldwide. The theme of the conference is “Advancements and Challenges in Neuroscience & Brain Disorders”, under which participants will stimulate each other to create and promote the body of neurology for meeting current and future needs of people who are facing difficult and complicated neuro problems.
