Special Interest Group 2021: Behavioral Neurology

November 15, 2021

Session Title: Insights at the Intersection of Electrophysiology and Neuroimaging

Description: Our fundamental understanding of the neural circuit dysfunction responsible for most cognitive and behavioral symptoms lags a recent explosion in knowledge regarding simpler, homeostatic circuits. Intracranial recordings, direct brain stimulation, and other electrophysiologic approaches provide valuable insights that complement results of functional neuroimaging, lesion analysis, and small-animal experiments. This intersection of knowledge from complementary approaches holds great potential for future advances in Behavioral Neurology. This symposium includes neuroscientists and neurologists working at the forefront of these areas, with an emphasis on fascinating and fundamentally new insights gleaned from recordings and stimulation of brain regions that may be central to our future understanding and treatment of behavioral symptoms.

Chair: Joel Geerling, MD, PhD, University of Iowa

Co-Chair: Ryan Darby, MD, Vanderbilt University

Objective(s): 

  • Following this session, learners will appreciate key, new discoveries that are fundamentally important to understanding brain functions central to Behavioral Neurology
