2. The concept of amyloid positive will be extensively discussed, and the attendees should be able to characterize the advantages and disadvantages of both dichotomized and continuous variable approaches to amyloid PET analyses with respect to specific purposes or intended uses of the outcome.
3. Attendees will have the opportunity to evaluate amyloid PET data in specific clinical and clinical research contexts, including review of typical findings in Alzheimer’s disease dementia, mild cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease, and in clinically normal individuals. These phenomena will also be related to familial forms of the disease and to non-AD processes such as fronto-temporal lobar degeneration and dementia with Lewy Bodies.
4. Particular attention will be given to the assessment of longitudinal amyloid PET data as it relates to methods of analysis and comparison to other domains of data, including structural and functional brain imaging data, and clinical and cognitive outcomes.
Cosyne topics include (but are not limited to): neural coding, natural scene statistics, dendritic computation, neural basis of persistent activity, nonlinear receptive field mapping, representations of time and sequence, reward systems, decision-making, synaptic plasticity, map formation and plasticity, population coding, attention, and computation with spiking networks. Participants include pure experimentalists, pure theorists, and everything in between.
For the forthcoming conference, we will be continuing with debates as well as adhering to the format of the previous conferences which are designed to provide an in-depth progress report on new antiepileptic drugs in various stages of development, as well as to present new findings on second-generation treatments.
