Session 2: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS is unique method where magnetic field is used to stimulate nerve cells via electromagnetic induction. It’s mainly used to treat the person having depression. The magnetic field generator is used to place near the person’s head so that brain can easily receive the signals and become effective. This method can able to modulate neuronal function and its expression. Based on the stimulation parameters the brain can be either enhanced or decreased. The respective session of the Brain Conference will give you an idea about TMS and how it works and the importance of Brain Stimulation in neurodegenerative disorders.

Session 4: Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS)

tDCS is a non-invasive, harmless brain stimulation process that uses direct current impulse to stimulate specific part of the brain and often producing improved cognitive performance. The current impulses which is transferred to the brain through two electrodes is basically constant and low intensity current that leads to modulate the neuronal activity. The respective session of the Brain Conference will help you out to understand brain function and the effectiveness of tDCS in psychiatric symptoms and cognitive impairments and let you know how to handle mental disorder by giving the treatment of Brain Stimulation.

Session 6: Neurology / Neurobiological Diseases

Neurology is the branch of medicine in which studying structure, diseases and function of nervous system which includes spinal cord, brain and nerves. Clinical neurology  is mainly concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of disorder of nervous system. Major two divisions on neurology include Peripheral nervous system and Central nervous system. The nervous system is a sophisticated and complex system which controls and coordinates body activities normally. The respective session of the Brain Conference will help you out to understand about the disease or disorders and investigate psychiatric symptoms and cognitive impairments and let you know how to handle brain disorder by giving the treatment of Brain Stimulation.

Session 7: Neurodegeneration & Aging Disorders

Neurodegeneration is the process of losing neurons within the brain and spinal cord. Neuron is build blocks for the nervous system including brain and spinal cord. Neurons cannot be regenerated or replace by body normally. Ageing affects many cellular processes that progress to the neurodegeneration and also age-related changes in cellular function will progress to the pathogenesis of PD. well known Neurodegenerative disease are Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), Huntington's disease (HD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The respective session of the Brain Conference will help you out to investigate psychiatric symptoms and cognitive impairments and let you know how to deal with aging disorders by giving the treatment of Brain Stimulation.

Session 8: Mental disorder / Mental illness

Mental disorder entails of modifications in thinking, emotion or conduct. Mental illness can deliver mild or excessive disturbances in concept and/or behaviour, a number of the commonplace disease like scientific despair, bipolar sickness, and dementia, schizophrenia and anxiety disorders. Mental illness or intellectual sickness can be associated with excessive strain because of a selected scenario. The respective session of the Brain Conference will help you out to investigate psychiatric symptoms and cognitive impairments and let you know how to handle mental disorder by giving the treatment of Brain Stimulation.

Session 9: Cognitive Neuropsychiatry

The term Cognitive Neuropsychiatry became coined by Prof Hadyn Ellis. Cognitive neuropsychiatry is integration of cognitive psychology and neuropsychiatry. It aims at understanding the intellectual illness and psychopathology in terms of models of normal mental characteristic. Cognitive neuropsychiatry is a method for investigating psychiatric symptoms and cognitive impairments by means of the intersection of psychiatry, cognitive psychology and neuroscience. Mainly the studies cognizance on cognitive issues, developmental disorders, psychiatric issues. The respective session of the Brain Conference will help you out to investigate psychiatric symptoms and cognitive impairments.

Session 11: The Neurobiology of Climate Change

Directional climate change (global warming) is causing rapid alterations in animals’ environments. Because the nervous system is at the forefront of animals’ interactions with the environment, the neurobiological implications of climate change are central to understanding how individuals, and ultimately populations, will respond to global warming. Evidence is accumulating for individual level, mechanistic effects of climate change on nervous system development and performance. Climate change can also alter sensory stimuli, changing the effectiveness of sensory and cognitive systems for achieving biological fitness. At the population level, natural selection forces stemming from directional climate change may drive rapid evolutionary change in nervous system structure and function.

Introduction:

Brain Disorder or any broad term of brain disease is so called Encephalopathy that can lead to destruction of nerve cells and as a result declining ability and concentrate, memory loss, personality change, seizures and twitching arises. So brain problem is now a days a major problem in worldwide scenario.

Practice of Brain stimulation in Europe and UK:

According to a file 166 million Europeans are residing with mind issues which include epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disorder, depression and sclerosis. 6.85 million People die every 12 months due to neurological problems at united nation cost spend neurological issues is $790 billion In UK spends yearly around £112.7 billion for Disorders of the brain along with dementia, stroke, and intellectual fitness problems. It was also showed in a report that Neurological disorders is in no 1 category that people are facing worldwide. So usage of brain stimulation is gradually increasing about 69% in 2018

Practice of Brain stimulation in America:

It has also been reported that among neurological disorder 55% is contributed by cerebrovascular disease, 12% by Alzheimer and other dementias and 8% each by epilepsy and migraine. So usage of brain stimulation is gradually increasing about 71% in 2018

 

Practice of Brain stimulation in Asia:

Neurological disorders are a crucial reason of mortality and represent 12% of general deaths globally and 4% deaths in Asia. Within those, cerebrovascular sicknesses are liable for 85% of the deaths due to neurological problems. So usage of brain stimulation is gradually increasing about 63% in 2018
