Synopsis

Nanoscale technologies have a potential revolutionary impact into the basic understanding, visualization and therapeutic applications of neuroscience. The special symposium on Nanotechnology to Neuroscience will deliver the state of the art in nanotechnology applications towards the development of therapies and pharmaceuticals for the treatment of neurological disorders, taking advantage of the nanoscale structure of neural cells (both neurons and glia). The symposium will include technologies such as quantum dots and other nanotechnologies that can visualize, measure, and track the molecular structure and dynamics of both intracellular and extracellular processes in neural cells. Technologies will be presented that are designed and used to regulate, influence, and modify cellular neural properties such as directed growth, proliferation, secretion of specific factors, differentiation, etc. A focus on technologies aimed at the delivery of molecules (eg. pharmaceuticals, genetic material, etc.) targeted to the nervous system will be covered, with a particular focus on delivery to the central nervous system and neural retina. Finally, topics such as nano-neural interfaces will be covered, both from a hardware and software (ie. algorithm) perspective aimed at highly sophisticated informational interfaces with neural cells and the nervous system.
