               ~       Upcoming event      ~
 "Neural control and new therapeutic approaches"
          Thursday, July 23, Berlin, Germany

The field of complex dynamics in neurology is very diverse. A
few examples of topics involving computational neuroscience
methods are:

 * stimulation techniques for pacemakers treating Parkinson's disease,
 * hallucinatory pattern formation during migraine with aura,
 * how the brain controls motor skills associated with stick balancing,
 * classifying seizure activity by bifurcation theory,
 * metabolite sensing for feedback control in neurological disorders
 * stabilizing tissue at risk of progressive damage in acute stroke,
 * therapeutic rewiring,
 * biofeedback training via a brain-computer interfaces,
 * using noise as therapy in the above mentioned neurological conditions

++ This diversity poses a problem in building a strongly interlinked
community. ++

On the the 18th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting CNS*2009, Berlin
we discuss during the workshop:

"Modeling Migraine: From Nonlinear Dynamics to Clinical Neurology"

approaches towards neural control and new therapeutic approaches.

If you are interested to participate and want to make an active contribution
(focus must be on neurology, complex dynamics, and therapy, though not
only migraine) you are invited to send a pdf (max. two slides) file to
be displayed
at your convenience during a moderated discussion section.
