2016 Symposium – Reprogramming the Brain to Health: Computational Psychiatry and Neurology
April 14, 2016 @ 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM
The Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas and its partners at the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at The University of California, Berkeley, present the tenth annual Reprogramming the Brain to Health Symposium.
The 2016 Symposium will explore computational and biophysical modeling approaches to examine the mechanisms of mental health issues.
The annual Symposium is designed to engage cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, physicians, psychologists, rehabilitation specialists, researchers, educators and students. Abstract submissions will be accepted for poster presentations during the 2016 Symposium. $500 awards will be given to each of the top five student poster submissions.
The Keynote Address and The Charles L. Branch BrainHealth Award recipient for 2016 is Professor Karl Friston, FRS, FMedSci
Dr. Friston is Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow and Scientific Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, Professor at the Institute of Neurology at University College London, and an Honorary Consultant to the United Kingdom’s National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
