The ICN PhD.D. Program is proud to announce a special event, the Brain Machine Interface day (BMI day) that will occur June 30th in the HA2 hall in the Timone hospital. Following the success of the « parkinson day » organized in 2015, we have decided to follow-up and organize once or twice a year such special event. During that day, our wish is to bring together clinicians and researchers, residents and PhD students, to follow presentations from internationally renown scientists and clinicians that will present the current state of the art on a particular clinical-relevant topic.
The next event will thus focus on Brain Machine interfaces, as it is a federative thematic that illustrates very well the interactions between fundamental and clinical approaches. During the event, we will have 3 duos of speakers that will give presents perspectives from fundamental and clinical viewpoints on three modalities: Visual, Auditive and Motor. We will leave enough time in each of these 3 sub-thematics to launch discussions and debate that will be moderated by a duo of PhD and clinical residents.
