TCCI® Translational Center Co-organizes International Symposium on Translational Research in Brain Stimulation

The International Symposium on Translational Research in Brain Stimulation: Neurophysiology, Neural Coding and Neural Control was held in Shanghai in November 2019.The meeting was organized by Fudan University’s Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence, the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Translational Research, the National Engineering Laboratory for Neuromodulation, Tsinghua University,  The Ministry of Education Key Laboratory, The Shanghai Society of Neuroscience and the Overseas Expertise Introduction Center for Discipline Innovation (“111 Center”).


During the three-day conference, Professor Feng Jianfeng, Dean of the Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence at Fudan University; Professor Wang Shouyan, Director of the Neural and Intelligence Engineering Center at Fudan University; Professor Luming Li, Director of the National Engineering Lab for Neuromodulation at Tsinghua University; Peter Brown, Professor of Experimental Neurology at the University of Oxford; Professor Timothy Denison, Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies at The Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of Oxford; Mark Edwards, professor of neurology at St George’s University of London Atkinson Morley Regional Neuroscience Center; Edward Chang, Professor, Neurological Surgery UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences; Professor Theodore Berger, David Packard Chair of Engineering and director of the Center for Neural Engineering at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and more than 20 well-known scholars gave keynote speeches.

The conference promoted cross-disciplinary exchanges and cooperation and the development and transformation of intelligent and precise neural regulation technology.


The presentations also outlined how artificial intelligence, big data analysis, neurophysiology and neuroimaging research will open up new directions for neural regulation mechanisms and technology research.
