2015 Satellite Meeting


April 19 – 20, 2015
All sessions will be held in the Colonial Room

This one-day satellite meeting will gather specialists in the fields of neurophysiology, neurology, neuroimaging, brain stimulation and rehabilitation to share state of the art research into the neural underpinnings of rehabilitation from nervous system injury and disease. The goal is to appeal to both basic and clinical scientists by emphasizing translational research and showing what the future of rehabilitation might look like. The three oral sessions provide a good mix of well-established and new players in the field, and there will be ample time for a poster session giving everybody the opportunity to discuss their newest results.
