Advances in understanding the brain both in healthy individuals and those suffering from a disorder have led to groundbreaking discoveries and engineering solutions. Together these advances hold the potential to ameliorate a wide range of neurological disorders and diseases and improve quality of life for those with neurological conditions. However, there are still many unanswered questions including the underlying causes of disease and disorders and the relationship of brain function to behavior. Development and deployment of effective neurotechnology and means of studying the brain through neuroimaging techniques and machine learning will require an integrated approach as well as close collaboration among the neuroengineering community, neuroscientists, and clinical practitioners. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners across academia, industry, and the clinical profession to highlight innovative neurotechnology and brain research methods, emphasizing their potential to improve understanding of the brain and address a wide range of disorders to improve the human condition. This workshop is a satellite event to the 2023 Society for Neuroscience Conference and will be held on the campus of George Washington University, Washington, DC. The program will consist of three tracks covering emerging neurotechnologies, machine learning for brain discovery, and clinical applications and impact. Each track will include a keynote speaker and invited speakers who will discuss their work in the context of larger issues in each of these topic areas, and also participate in a panel following the invited talks. The program will also include a panel on the ethical implications of neurotechnology, as well as a panel by sponsoring agencies. Exhibits from the neurotech industry will be on display as well as poster presentations.

By: American Brain Coalition

The American Brain Coalition (ABC) is a nonprofit organization comprised of the United States’ leading professional neurological, psychological, and psychiatric associations and patient organizations. Together, we seek to advance the understanding of the functions of the brain, and to reduce the burden of brain disorders through public education and advocacy. With an established presence in Washington, DC, the American Brain Coalition (ABC) is a strong and powerful voice for the 100 million people living with disabling brain disorders, bringing together organizations that represent concerned and interested patients, families, and professionals. This voice is used to advocate for increased support of research that leads to better treatment; services and support that improves patients’ quality of life; as well as a national commitment towards finding cures for individuals with disabling neurological and psychiatric disorders. On behalf of all who live with neurological and psychiatric disorders, we invite organizations that share our concerns and goals to join us in our educational, engagement and advocacy efforts.
