Interpreting BOLD: a dialogue between cognitive and cellular neuroscience

Interpreting BOLD: a dialogue between cognitive and cellular neuroscience
Thursday 28 – Friday 29 January 2016
The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society Centre, Buckinghamshire
Organised by Dr Anusha Mishra, Professor David Attwell FRS, Dr Zebulun Kurth-Nelson, Dr Catherine N. Hall and Dr Clare Howarth

More information
Cognitive neuroscientists use BOLD signals to non-invasively study brain activity, although the neurophysiological underpinnings of these signals are poorly understood. By bringing together scientists using BOLD/fMRI as a tool with those studying the underlying neurovascular coupling mechanisms, we will create a novel dialogue to understand how BOLD relates to brain activity and inform future neurovascular and cognitive research.

Please note that the meeting will take place at the Royal Society’s meeting venue Chicheley Hall in Buckinghamshire, not at the Society’s premises in London.

Due to a limited number of places at this meeting, interested colleagues are asked to register their interest by visiting the meeting webpage and clicking ‘request an invitation’. Places at the meeting will be allocated from the end of July onwards. Please feel free to share this invitation with any interested colleagues.

The meeting is free to attend, but participants will be asked to cover the costs of their catering and accommodation. Please do let me know if you have any questions at all.
