CNI 5th Year – Thanks and links to videos of the presentations

October 19th, 2016

The CNI Team sends a thanks to the many of you who took the time to come to the talks and celebrate the CNI’s fifth year.  We hope you enjoyed the morning.

A special thanks to Nisa Cao, who organized the room, food, and posters, with great help from Roz Grayson and Porsche Williams.  Nisa and the team made the event happen smoothly, and we are very grateful for their help.

Michael Perry posted videos of the talks as well as a few pictures from the event.  These are hosted at the  talks.stanford.edu site he built and maintains.

Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tübingen

NET-fMRI of Large-Scale Brain Networks:  Mapping Dynamic Connectivity in Epochs of Synaptic and System Consolidation

Neural-Event-Triggered fMRI (NET-fMRI) can potentially map whole-brain activity, associated with individual local events – or their interactions – in various brain structures. In my talk, I will describe a number of characteristic states of widespread cortical and subcortical networks that are associated with the occurrence of thalamic, hippocampal  and pontine events, which may be related to synaptic and systems consolidation of different memories.

10:45 – Professor David Eagleman
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University

How the Brain Constructs Reality

11:30 – 1:00 Posters and Lunch

So that we can plan for the proper amount of coffee and food, please Register for this event.

In addition to the scientific presentations, we will host a poster session where we invite all members of the campus-wide neuroimaging community to come and present your projects with other members of the community.

As part of the event the CNI team will update you about the equipment and software plans for the CNI and how we and our colleagues at the Lucas Center are working together to try to provide high quality neuroimaging support for the campus. There will be time for you to provide us with feedback on new features you would like to see implemented.

CNI – Celebrating Five Years (Save the Date, October 14th)

August 12th, 2016

Save the Date:  The morning of Friday, October 14th

The CNI team invites you to join us for a celebration to mark our first five years of operation.  The celebration will take place the morning of October 14th.  We have not yet secured a room, but we remain hopeful ;-).  The time is a bit uncertain because the room available is a bit uncertain.  So this is just a heads-up about the morning/lunch.

Here is what we do know:  There will be two 45 minute presentations from distinguished colleagues who are visiting Stanford,

In addition to the talks, we will have a poster session where we invite all members of the campus-wide neuroimaging community to share information about your projects and to meet other members of the community.

Finally, as part of the event the CNI team will update you about the equipment and software plans for the CNI and how we and our colleagues at the Lucas Center are working together to try to provide high quality neuroimaging support for the campus. There will be time for you to provide us with feedback on new features you would like to see implemented.
