Call for Abstract

Neurology deals with the treatment and diagnosis of all categories of conditions and disease involving the peripheral and central nervous system including their coverings, blood-vessels and all effector tissue, such as muscle. Neurologists may also be involved in clinical trials, clinical research, and basic or translational research.

Pediatric Neurology Child neurology refers to a branch of medicine that deals with the management and diagnosis of neurological conditions in neonates, children, infants, and adolescents. The discipline of child neurology encompasses diseases and disorders of the brain, peripheral nervous system, spinal cord, autonomic nervous system and blood vessels that affects individuals in these age groups.

Neurophysiology is a medical process which aims to aid and recovery from nervous system injury. The study of the functions of the nervous system. Rehabilitation is an access to reduce nervous system abscesses thereby increasing the neural repair. Neural rehabilitation program is an aimed to create awareness about the neurological disorders and its diagnosis.

Neurological Disorders are disorders of the neural system occur when the brain is damaged by health conditions, injury or disease. The three brain chemicals noradrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin are involved in both brain and body functions.  The goal of this session is to understand the Origin, Genesis, Causes and Source of various types of Neural disorders. The causes of brain disorders: Tumor, Stroke, Brain’s electrical pathway, Brain trauma, Viral infections and Genesis of Brain.

The human spine is a strong independent structure of 33 bones (vertebrae) joined by ligaments and muscles. It extends from the skull to pelvis. The vertebra is classified into different regions: Cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacrum, and coccyx. An intervertebral disc divides and protects each vertebra in the spine. Thirty-one pairs of spinal nerves originate from the spinal cord, transmitting signals to and fro between the body and the spinal cord.
 
Spine damage seriously impairs the capability of one’s control over sensation and movement. A neutral spine refers to the "three natural curves present in a healthy spine". The correct alignment of body lays minimal pressure on the spine and facilitates a fine posture.  
 

The brain and nervous system are a target for certain infections and may also be indirectly affected by  viral or parasitic infections, systemic bacterial and their treatment. Some pathogens, such as West Nile Virus, Borrelia burgdorferi, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), syphilis and other viral brain infections occur in otherwise healthy persons. Other infections, like fungal infections or rarer parasites tend to most commonly affect people with reduced immune systems from immunosuppressive therapy,cancer, chemotherapy or transplantation. 

Neuroimmunology is a branch of immunology  that deals with the inter relationships of the immune responses, nervous system and autoimmune disorders. Its deals with particularly fundamental and applied neurovirology, neuropathology, neurobiology, neurology, neurochemistry, neuromuscular research, neuroendocrinology neuropharmacology and psychology, which involve either immunologic methodology.

The peripheral nervous system is a part of the nervous system that consists of the nerves, spinal cord and ganglia outside of the brain. The peripheral nervous system consists of sensory neurons which are running from stimulus receptors and informs the Central Nervous System of the stimuli and motor neurons running from the CNS to the muscles and glands are called effectors. This session also includes Diabetic Nerve Problems, Thoracic outlet syndrome, somatic nervous system, Bipolar Disorder and Challenges of CNS Translational Research.

Neuromuscular disorders are disorders of the nerves that control the voluntary muscles. One of the causes is the immune system disorder and genetic. More than 2 million people in the United States are affected by such form of neuromuscular diseases and about 30% of them are under the age18. Diagnosis includes NCV test, biochemical, genetic test, a multi-step process like muscle biopsy etc. The motive of this session is to understand the origin of Muscular dystrophy, Lambert-Eaton syndrome and neuromuscular junction disorder. Further there will be an interactive conversation on Hyper reflexia, Spasticy and its prevention. 

Neurosurgery refers to the medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders that affect our nervous system i.e spinal cord, brain, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Developed in the first half of the twentieth-century neurosurgery has witnessed till date exponential advances in intensive care, technology, and sophisticated non-invasive procedures. This has undoubtedly have widened the scope of neurosurgical practice. Paediatric neurosurgery, Functional Neurosurgery, Neurovascular Surgery, Traumatology, Neuro-oncology, Skull-base surgery, Spinal surgery are the different categories of neurosurgery

Neuropsychiatry is the branch of Neurology that deals with neural and mental disorders  attributable to diseases of the nervous system. It preceded current disciplines of neurology and psychiatry, which had common. Psychiatry and neurology subsequently split aparts and are typical practiced separately. Clinical neuropsychology is a subspecialty of clinical psychology that specialises in assessment and treatment of patients with brain disease or injury. Epilepsy is the third common neurological disorder in the Europe after stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease. 

Neuroimaging is the visual function of the brain and nervous system. Through neuroimaging diagnosis of current status and progression of neurodegenerative, psychiatric, intracranial disease is possible. Neuroimaging includes various techniques such as PET, MRI, and CT for diagnosis.
Biomarker can be any substance which is introduced into organisms as an indicator for detecting, screening, diagnosing, monitoring organ function. Biomarker indicates whether there is any disease or healthy state. Use of biomarkers is increasing day by day in drugs development. Biomarkers should be easy to measure easily modifiable, cost effective for treatment and should be consistent with gender.
 

Brain engineering or Neural engineering can be used to understand, replace, repair, enhance and otherwise exploit the properties of the neural systems and Neuro-computing are the study of neurons function in terms of information processing property of structures that make up the nervous system. The current researchers in the field of neural engineering include: neural networking, Neural imaging and  Biomolecular therapies in neural regeneration,  Biological neural networking, Neurorobotics, Neuro hydrodynamics and clinical treatment, Engineering strategies for repair.
