CORTICAL CONNECTIONS SYMPOSIUM
June 28, 8:30am - 5:30pm
Westin South Coast Plaza
A special event hosted by the International Consortium for the Corpus Callosum and Cerebral Connectivity (IRC5) in collaboration with the National Organization for Disorders of the Corpus Callosum (NODCC).
The Cortical Connections Symposium is a scientific meeting for physicians and clinical professionals who treat individuals with developmental malformations of cortical connectivity (specifically the corpus callosum) and researchers studying these conditions. Individuals with corpus callosum disorders and their family members are also welcome to attend. (Please note that the presentations will be quite technical, as the program was designed for physicians, clinical professionals and trainees in these fields. Several of the symposium speakers will provide less-technical presentations at the DCC Conference.)
The program consists of a series of brief presentations arranged in general progression from cellular and molecular studies, to neural diagnostics in humans, and finally to higher-level cognitive and behavioral issues related to malformation of cortical connectivity. Speakers include scientists and clinicians from around the world; leading experts from the fields of developmental neuroscience, laboratory genetics, clinical genetics, paediatric neurology, neuroimaging and neuropsychology.
