17th Annual Dynamical Neuroscience Satellite Symposium - "Dynamical

(Preceding the 39th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience)

Thursday and Friday, October 15-16, 2009

The Buckingham Ballroom of the Allerton Hotel, 701 North Michigan
Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

The concept of dynamical diseases has been in existence for over 30
years, with numerous re-views drawing attention to disorders that are
characterized by the recurrence of certain symptoms, or exhibit
oscillations that appear in the intensity of an ongoing nervous system
disease.  Neuropsychiatric and neurological diseases exhibiting
periodicity or cyclicity include Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia,
Seasonal Affective Disorder, Klein-Levin Syndrome, Sleep Disorders,
Binging, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Jet-Lag and Headache.  The time
course of the disorders can range from seconds and minutes to months and
years.  This symposium will examine a number of dynamical disorders of
the nervous system, with the aim of providing an overarching perspective
into potential underlying mechanisms, detection, prevention and
treatment strategy.

Confirmed Speakers:  Bard Ermentrout, Leon Glass, Isabela Granic,
