#ALT# Attend Neuroimmunology Drug Development

Are you struggling to translate your immunological targets into validated, clinic-ready candidates?

Focused on drug development, NIDD taking place in Boston (Apr 17-18) will enable you to effectively target neuroimmunological mechanisms to treat neurological disorders. With an emphasis on neurodegeneration, this meeting will provide a discussion-led platform for you to discover the best strategies and most innovative technologies to aid your future neuroimmunological research.

As we go about our daily lives, we are constantly bombarded by a steady stream of sensory information. Take a typical morning routine for example- roused from sleep by a shrill alarm, the strong aroma of freshly brewed coffee, and the brake lights and traffic horns of rush hour. In the course of a single day, we experience thousands of different cues across all senses.

Your chances of getting a nasty migraine increase following a spinal cord injury, thanks to a chemical messenger in the brain that spikes to toxic levels, past studies have suggested.

In a new study that could improve the therapeutic efficacy of deep-brain stimulation for psychiatric disorders such as depression, a team of scientists shows that, when DBS is applied to a specific brain region, it improves patients' cognitive control over their behavior by increasing the power of a specific low-frequency brain rhythm in their prefrontal cortex.

Researchers at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience of the Higher School of Economics have proposed to train transplanted muscles in advance with new movements so that the brain can learn to use them more quickly after autotransplantation.
