XII ISMRBF Workshop

The Organizing Committee is pleased to inform you that this year the 12th Annual Workshop of the ISMRBF will take place from April 30th to May 6th, 2016 in Erice (TP), Italy. This workshop is focused on neurometabolic/neurovascular coupling, brain physiology, metabolism and energetics, as assessed with Magnetic Resonance and neurophysiological techniques.

The Workshop is open to physicists, clinicians, and basic scientists.

Purpose of the Workshop

This year workshop is devoted to INVESTIGATING BRAIN FUNCTION AND STRUCTURE  BY ADVANCED MAGNETIC RESONANCE APPROACHES

Magnetic Resonance in the last thirty years has generated a wide revolution in biomedical research and in medical diagnostics. More recently the "in vivo" studies of the human brain were extended by new original ways to the dynamic study of function and metabolism of the human brain. The enormous interest in expanding the investigation of the brain is emphasizing the search for new NMR methods capable of extracting information of so-far obscure aspects of the brain function. In fact many quantitative approaches have been proposed in order to complement the information obtained by BOLD fMRI. In the Course strong emphasis will be given to the new opening arising from the combination of fMRI and electrophysiology, as well as on novel approaches for the characterization of structural damage in brain diseases.
