19th Annual Dynamical Neuroscience Satellite Symposium

Deep Brain Stimulation in Mental Illness, Neurological Disorders and Cognitive Impairment

Preceding the 41st Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience

Thursday and Friday, November 10-11, 2011

Marriott Renaissance Washington Hotel

Mount Vernon Square Room

999 Ninth Street NW, Washington, DC

Deep Brain Stimulation is a treatment which has been initiated in over a dozen neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions and disorders, yet the mechanism(s) underlying its efficacy are largely unknown and subject to much speculation.  The procedure has also been reported to produce numerous instances of adverse effects, ranging from bleeding within the brain and infection to cognitive dysfunction, hallucinations, compulsivity and even depression.

This symposium will address the current range of applications, efficacies, case studies, and the theory and modeling that attempt to uncover the biological underpinnings of its beneficial effects.  The ultimate goal is to bring about a greater understanding of the means by which the beneficial effects are produced, at the molecular, cellular and network levels.
