Recommended Global Neuroscience Conferences
Stroke Congress 2017
Neurological scatters are sicknesses of the cerebrum, spine and the nerves that interface them. There are more than 600 infections of the sensory system, for example, cerebrum tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson's ailment and stroke and less well-known ones, for example, frontotemporal dementia.
Track 1: Neurological Disorders
Neurological disorders are disorders of central and peripheral nervous system which comprises of brain, spine and nervous system. There are more than 600 neurological diseases such as epilepsy, Alzheimer, Parkinson, brain tumors, cerebrovascular diseases including stroke, and dementia which are common. Millions of people are affected worldwide due to neurological disorders.
Track 2: Cerebrovascular Disorders
Cerebrovascular refers to blood flow in the brain. Arteries supplying oxygen to the brain are affected and bring about one of a number of cerebrovascular diseases. Most common is a stroke or mini-stroke and sometimes can be hemorrhagic stroke. Cerebrovascular diseases include carotid stenosis, vertebral stenosis and intracranial stenosis, aneurysms, and vascular malformations. Restriction in blood flow can be caused by vessel narrowing, clot formation, blockage or blood vessel rupture.
It is estimated that about 6 million deaths are due to cerebrovascular disorders. It is the second leading cause of death in the world and 6th most common cause of disability.
Track 3: Neuroradiology & Imaging Techniques
Neuroimaging allows visual representation of structure and function of brain and nervous system. Through neuroimaging diagnosis we can evaluate the current status and progression of neurological and neurodegenerative diseases. Neuroimaging include various techniques such as MRI, PET, and CT for diagnosis.
Track 4: Neurosurgery
Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty which deals with diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases by performing surgery on brain, spinal cord, nervous system and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. It is performed by a skilled neurosurgeon. There are specialized branches to special and difficult conditions. Pediatric neurosurgery treats children with operable neurological diseases. Oncologic neurosurgery deals with brain and spinal tumors surgery.
Track 5: Spine and Spinal Disorders
Spinal cord is an important part which acts as a mediator between brain and peripheral nervous system. It extends from medulla oblongata in the brain stem to lumbar region of vertebral column. The brain and spinal cord together makeup central nervous system.
Spine damage can impair the sensation and movement of the person. A neutral spine refers to the "three natural curves present in a healthy spine". Most common spinal diseases are scoliosis, spina bifida, lumbar spinal stenosis etc. spinal diseases cause back pain. A spinal tumor is a condition where an unusual growth occurs in the spinal cord.
Track 6: Brain Tumors and Neurooncology
Brain tumor refers to abnormal growth of cells within the brain. There are two types of tumors: malignant or cancerous tumors and benign tumors. Symptoms may include headaches, seizures, problem with vision, vomiting, and mental changes. The cause of brain tumors is unknown. Treatment includes combination of surgery, chemo and radiation therapy.
Neurooncology is the study of brain and spine neoplasms. Many of these are life-threatening which include astrocytoma, glioma, and brain stem tumor is the most common. Commonly used treatments are radiation therapy, chemotherapy, corticosteroids and use of neurosurgical interventions.
Track 7: Ischemic Stroke
An ischemic stroke occurs when there is sudden loss of blood flow to the brain caused by blockage of artery or a temporary loss of blood supply to one part of the brain (mini-stroke). Ischemic stroke can be caused by either thrombosis or embolism. Thrombosis is obstruction of blood flow in the blood vessel due to formation of clot. Embolism occurs when a particle which can be a broken piece of thrombus, fat, air bubble or a tumor flows in the blood and reaches brain until it gets stuck in a narrow blood vessel through which it cannot pass and restricts the blood flow. This interruption of blood flow deprives the brain of oxygen which results in irreversible brain injury and disability.
Track 8: Cerebral Hemorrhage
Cerebral hemorrhage also known as cerebral bleed is caused due to rupture of blood vessel inside the brain which causes brain damage. Localized bleeding causes pressure on surrounding tissue which kills the brain cells. Most common causes are head trauma, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and brain tumors. Largest risk factor is high blood pressure. Symptoms are to be assessed FAST (facial droop, arm weakness, speech difficulty, time to call emergency).
Track 9: Diagnosis and Risk factors
Diagnostic tests help us to rule out the presence of a neurological disorder, but evaluating the nervous system can be complicated as same symptoms are present in different conditions. Physicians use a variety of diagnostic techniques along with chemical and metabolic analysis to detect and treat neurological diseases. Diagnosis of central nervous system assesses motor and sensory skills, the functioning of one or more cranial nerves, hearing and speech, vision, coordination and balance, mental status, and changes in mood or behavior, among other abilities. Most common tests used to diagnose a neurological condition are CT scan, MRI, EEG, EMG, Angiogram and Lumbar puncture.
Track 10: Stroke and its Management
Stroke it is either treated with intravenous thrombolysis using tissue plasminogen activator or mechanical treatment to physically remove the clot. In a hemorrhagic stroke, mechanical treatment to remove blood or sometimes surgery is done.
Track 11: Surgery for Hemorrhage
Hemorrhagic stroke is a medical emergency which requires immediate treatment. The patient is closely monitored in an intensive care unit. Surgery is recommended depending upon the stroke severity and patient’s condition. A surgery is performed to remove the hematoma and to reduce the pressure on the brain. Surgery for aneurysm is done if hemorrhage is caused by a ruptured aneurysm. Surgery is required only if the hematoma is greater than 3cm and if there is any vascular lesion in young patients.
Track 12: Rehabilitation and Stroke Therapy
Rehabilitation is an important phase for patients after stroke. Stroke rehabilitation helps you to relearn skills that you lost when stroke affected a part of your brain. The goal is to help you return to independent living. Rehabilitation program depends on the severity of stroke and the part of the body affected. Stroke therapy involves: mobility and motor skills training, self-care skills, communication skills, cognitive skills such as memory and technology assisted physical activities.
Track 13: Role of Immune System in Stroke/Brain Injury
Immune reactions have an important role in stroke and are associated in the primary and secondary progression of ischemic lesions, and are also in involved in repair, recovery, and overall outcome of stroke. Immune system actively participates in the acute pathogenesis of stroke. Thrombosis and hypoxia trigger an intravascular inflammatory cascade, which is further augmented by the innate immune response to cellular damage occurring in the parenchyma. This immune activation may cause secondary tissue injury. Further research is required to determine what role does immune system has in long-term outcomes after stroke, but elucidation of potential mechanisms may open promising avenues for the development of new therapeutics to improve neurological recovery after brain injury.
Track 14: Neurology and Nursing
It is a subspecialty of nursing that helps patients suffering from neurological problems, which include injuries to brain and spine caused from accidents or illnesses. Neuroscience nurses also work with patients suffering from strokes and neurological disorders which affect their movement and cognitive ability. Their role is to assess, diagnose and treat patients that are suffering from neurological problems and also perform thorough physical examinations of patients. They may also help in administering medications or even assist during surgery.
Track 15: Neuropharmacology
Neuropharmacology is the study of how drug affects the cellular function in the neural system. There are mainly 2 types: behavioral and molecular neuropharmacology. Behavioral neuropharmacology refers to study of how drug affects human behavior which includes drug dependence and also how addiction affects the brain. Molecular neuropharmacology involves study of neurons and their neural mechanisms which affect the behavior. Neuropharmacology helps in developing drugs that benefits neurological function and helps us to better understand the basis for new drug development.
Track 16: Neuropsychiatry and Mental Health
Neuropsychiatry is a sub-specialty of psychiatry which understands the link between mind, body and its behavior. It is the interface of psychiatry and neurology that deals with mental disorders that attribute to neurological disorders. Neuropsychiatry addresses cognition and/or behavior problems caused by brain injury or brain disease. Neuropsychiatrist is trained in both neurological and psychiatric aspects of illness, which helps them to give exclusive care.
Track 17: Clinical Trials and Case Reports
Worldwide millions of people are suffering from neurological diseases and annually around 6 million people are dying due to various neurological diseases. There are more than 600 known neurological diseases which affect our nervous system but there are limited treatment options till date and there is ongoing research.
Clinical trials and case reports in various fields such as neurooncology, neurosurgery, and stroke recovery are present for the scientists, researchers and doctors to share their experiences of new and complicated neurological conditions. This track gives researchers knowledge about new technologies, clinical trials and new aspects.
