Next October 24th and 25th, from 17:00h to 20:00h (Spanish peninsular time), the “I VIU-NED Chair on Global Neuroscience and Social Change Conference” will take place in online and face-to-face format. Event declared of health interest by the Consellería de Sanitat Universal i Salut Pública de la Comunidad Valenciana.

What are we going to see in this conference?

Neurosciences are nourished by advances and discoveries about the nervous system, combining various disciplines such as medicine, physiology, biology and psychology, among others. Within this context, Global Neuroscience and Social Change represents a new challenge of knowledge as it aims to expand the healthcare practice based on Neurosurgery and other fields of knowledge within Neuroscience to low-income countries such as those in East Africa; This work makes social change possible in the local population, as it provides special attention to the child population, and also makes it possible to continue researching and incorporating in these areas the findings of some fields of knowledge such as brain connectivity and/or neuroimaging studies that are acquired in countries with medium-high incomes in order to approach the neurological patient from an integral perspective. The Chair in Global Neuroscience and Social Change of the International University of Valencia and the NED Foundation are organising the 1st Conference in hybrid format of the Chair in Global Neuroscience and Social Change to be held on 24 and 25 October 2022.

The conference on October 24th will take place both in person and online, from 17:00h to 20:00h, and will be held at the Ilustre Colegio Oficial de Médicos de Valencia (Sala Barcía Goyanes). The conference on 25 October will be in online format only.

The “I Conference of the VIU-NED Chair of Global Neuroscience and Social Change” is an event declared of health interest by the Conselleria de Sanitat Universal i Salut Pública de la Comunidad Valenciana. 

  • The first day begins with the presentation of the Chair in which its co-directors will make a brief tour of the activities that have taken place in this first year. his will be followed by the inaugural lecture, which will seek to incorporate advances in computational neuroscience based on the basic concepts of structural and functional neuroanatomy. Finally, there will be a round table in which the protocols and perspectives applied in the comprehensive approach to neurological damage in children will be presented by a multidisciplinary team dedicated to this specialty.
  • On the second day, different workshops will be held, with limited places, in which specific training will be given in competencies and skills related to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of neurological patients. The day will end with a closing conference on the concept of Global Neuroscience and Social Change by Dr. Jose Piquer Martinez, Director of the NED Foundation and expert in international relations.

Attendance is free. To attend you must register for the session you are interested in using the form on this page. To register for the workshops, you must also fill in that form.
