Society for human Brain Mapping and Therapeutics

2015 GenomicCourseAnnouncement

The 13th Annual World Congress of SBMT will bring together physicians, scientists, policy makers, funding agencies and industry to further the advances and applications in brain and spinal cord mapping and image guided therapies (operative and non-operative). The conference will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center in the beautiful City of Miami, Florida on the East Coast of the United State of America.

We encourage you to come and visit the annual conference which will host a world class program across the three days, an exhibition hall, poster displays and plenty of networking events.

The conference aim is to create a critical mass by introducing synergy amongst inter-disciplinary researchers to further understand the brain function and nervous system. It will serve as a platform from which to develop interactions between many of the stakeholders who also have extensive collaborations at national and international levels.

The conference provides the opportunity to be at the forefront of brain sciences, therapeutics in general and neural stem cells interventions in particular. It provides a strong platform for industry and biotech companies to interact with academia in frontiers of science in this field for translational initiatives involving diverse patient’s interest groups.

The official language of this convention is English. Topics covered including:

• Neurosurgery (e.g. Image Guided Therapy/intervention, brain tumors and intraoperative navigation, nanoneurosurgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, minimally invasive therapy, vascular neurosurgery, functional neurosurgery, neurotrauma/military medicine, surgical simulation…..)
• Neurology (e.g. Movement Disorders, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Neurooncology, Neuromodulation, epilepsy, autism, brain and spinal cord function….)
• Psychiatry (e.g. medical imaging for psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, depression, PTSD…)
• Radiology (e.g. fMRI, PET, Nuclear medicine, MR SPEC, MR-PET, DTI, CT-PET, Focused Ultrasound, SQUID MRI, ultra high/low MRI…)
• Neuroscience (e.g. stem cell, molecular neuroscience, image guided mapping of genes, proteomics, genomics, neurophysiology, …)
• Neuroengineering (e.g. biomaterial & tissue engineering, human brain Machine Interface, brain and spinal cord devices, nanomedicine, extraterrestrial/space medicine & clinical practice, software engineering, electrical and material engineering, aeronautic engineering/space medicine and Radiation Physics/Oncology as well as robotics)
• Nano-Bio-Electronics (e.g. integration of Stem cell/cellular therapy with nanotechnology, medical devices and imaging)
• Spinal Cord (e.g. regeneration, stem cell, imaging, implants and biologics and imaging….)
• Policy (e.g. healthcare policy issues that affect the treatment delivery, and usage of certain devices/drugs/imaging technologies, FDA regulations and reimbursements, federal and regional regulation impacting healthcare delivery and research funding….)

Why is the human brain so advanced? | Yahoo Answers

The reason is that our brain increased drastically in size when the genus Homo evolved. At first, our ancestors were bipedal apes with a brain size that were similar to that of a chimp. Living and surviving in the savanna, without any of the speed or weapons that savanna animals like zebras, wildebeasts, lions, and hyenas have, we need brains to survive. Our brain size increased further when we evolved from Homo erectus to Homo sapiens about 150,000 years ago in Africa. As a result, we have more brain than any other animal that is the same size as we are. Encephalization Quotient is th…
