For Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Brain Imaging.
The BrainBox Initiative Conference brings together rich, field-leading expertise in brain stimulation and brain imaging. The conference is designed specifically to encourage the presentation of groundbreaking research, and to encourage neuroscientists from all stages of their careers to meet, network, discover, and exchange ideas with their peers and discover exciting new opportunities to collaborate.
The programme has been created in collaboration with key academics in the field, Professors John Rothwell, Sven Bestmann and Joe Devlin of University College London, Professor Michael Banissy, Goldsmiths, University of London, Dr Charlotte Stagg and Dr Jacinta O’Shea, University of Oxford and Professor Paul Taylor, LMU Munich.
The programme includes:
- Keynote – Professor Zoe Kourtzi, University of Cambridge
- Keynote – Professor Yoshikazu Ugawa, Fukushima Medical University
- Dr Camilla Nord, University of Cambridge
- Professor Paul Taylor, LMU Munich
- ‘Preparing to Stimulate – Ethics and Research Design’ with Professor Kate Watkins and Professor Joseph Devlin
- An update from 2017 Research Challenge winners, Naheem Bashir and Tegan Penton
- Poster pitches and session
- Presentation of the BrainBox Initiative Research Challenge 2018
- Presentation of the Young Investigator Award 2018
- Networking opportunities
- Plus much more!
*New* Satellite event - Advanced TMS Techniques One-Day Workshop, Sat 29 Sept
Researchers are invited to submit abstracts for inclusion on the conference poster session. We are looking for research studies that include non-invasive brain imaging and stimulation.
Please note, this year we will only be accepting 30 posters who will be offered the opportunity to present a short Poster Pitch during the conference.
A limited number of poster spaces have become available - submit soon to avoid disappointment!
This comprehensive prize will enable an early career researcher to complete a proof of principal or pilot study, boost their CV, learn new skills and make new valuable networking connections.
Call for entries is now closed
Young Investigator Award
The BrainBox Initiative Young Investigator Award seeks to stimulate and reward novel neuroscience research. Current graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are invited to submit descriptions of ongoing research and published papers.
