Talk on BRAINTRAIN by David Linden

David Linden is giving a talk on BRAINTRAIN at the Central Institute for Mental Health, Mannheim, Germany on September 20th, 2016.

Workshop on "Medical devices in brain research: from design to clinical application"

October 24th, 2016 - Coimbra University Hospital, Coimbra, Portugal.

The event will address different aspects of medical devices for neuroscience, representing an opportunity to gather national and international experts in medicine, research, design and commercialization of medical devices, regulation and entrepreneurship.

Detailed agenda and additional information available here.

Workshop on Standardization

September 27th, 2016 - Max-Planck-Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany

The workshop will bring together developers of real-time analysis software, experts in real-time image reconstruction and representatives of scanner manufacturers. To enable efficient exchange and interaction, the workshop format is based on a small group of presenters and attendees (< 25), and shorter talks will be complemented by focused discussions.

In order to facilitate the standardization discussion, the workshop will review the current status and anticipate future developments in the field. The presentations and panel discussions will develop further the standardization goal by discussing data formats, scanner interfacing and bi-directional communication between the MRI scanner and external hardware.

Detailed agenda available here.

The Queen opens Cardiff University’s new neuroimaging centre

On June 7th, Queen Elizabeth II officially opened Cardiff University’s new neuroimaging centre, and heard about the ongoing research in neurofeedback.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were given a tour of Cardiff University's new £44m Brain Research Imaging Centre (Cubric), which is the biggest of its kind in Europe and one of the best equipped in the world.
