ABOUT

Welcome to IBS Conference on Neuroimaging
We invite you to the “IBS Conference on Neuroimaging” on October 11-12, 2019 organized by the Center for Neuroscience Imaging Research (CNIR), an IBS Center at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU). The conference will be held at the SKKU Natural Science campus in Suwon, which is a southern suburb city of Seoul, South Korea. The goal of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) is to advance the frontiers of knowledge and to train the leading scientists of tomorrow. The CNIR, which is one of IBS centers, is equipped with animal (9.4 and 15.2T) and human MRI (3 and 7T), and pursues synergetic, multi-modal, multi-disciplinary, imaging-based neuroscience research. The IBS Conference on Neuroimaging is for celebration of the installation and operation of the first FDA-approved 7T system in Asia.
The marriage of high-resolution functional MRI with novel concepts in computational neuroscience and machine learning already provides unprecedented insights into how the mind and the brain work. In particular, ultra-high field MRI (≥ 7T) is increasingly being used by cognitive neuroscientists and neurologists, allowing us to link animal models of cognitive functioning with human neuroscience. A human 7T MRI provides an unprecedented potential to visualize small anatomical and functional structures and subtle pathologies, thus opening new avenues for human brain and cognitive science and fostering new discovery in brain health and disease.
The conference themes include methodological developments and applications of structural and functional high-field MRI in humans and non-human primates. Presentations will be given by world-leading experts in the areas ultrahigh field MR physics, non-human primate fMRI, (ultra-high resolution) human fMRI, and computational neuroscience.
We invite all of you to the “IBS Conference on Neuroimaging”
