The goal of this workshop is to bring together neuroscientists, tool developers/engineers, and industry partners to identify new non-invasive functional imaging tools that could be realized in the next five to ten years. Discussion topics will include how to maximize potential impact of these technologies on human neuroscience research, and identification of possible pathways for their dissemination. Presentations will be posted prior to the workshop, and the discussion will be broadcast to the public. Please be aware of a companion workshop on Dissemination of Non-Invasive Imaging Technologies scheduled for March 9-11, 2021.
