11th Scientific Day of the Centre IRM-INT@CERIMED

Adaptation of brain sensorimotor networks during development and aging

 25 may 2018 - site CERIMED


This conference day will address the question of how our brain adapts throughout the lifespan due to major changes related to growth and normal aging. Speakers will present recent findings and advances in functional, diffusion and anatomical imaging to unravel the underpinnings of adaptive processes that inevitably occur in the brain sensorimotor network in both children and the elderly.

Organizers : Anne Kavounoudias, Christine Assaiante & Caroline Landelle


Registration FREE mandatory
