International Conference for Advanced Neurotechnology

In the past decades significant new advances have been brought on the joint problems of scaling neuroscience tools to interface with entire neuronal circuits and defining elemental cell types, but not sufficient yet to accelerate neuroscience. ICAN is an inaugural conference to bring engineers and neuroscientists together to review the recent advancement in neurotechnology and neuroscience, define the need for next-generation tools to move neuroscience forward, and enhance translation of technology to science community.

Registration has ended, check back for information about 2017's conference.

Panel Discussion (Moderator: Huda Akil)
4:00
What should the next-generation neurotechnology be to advance neuroscience? What is needed in the neuroscience user community? What are the challenges for engineers? The end of engineering research is the beginning of neuroscience application. How do we narrow the gap for translation? How to best train the next generation of student scientists to apply new technology and to identify future technology needs based on brain science?
