Center for Biomedical Neuroscience to hold first retreat Nov. 29
(11-15-01)

The Center for Biomedical Neuroscience (CBN) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio will hold its first retreat for anyone interested in the neurosciences. The retreat will take place from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29.

Registration for the CBN poster session begins at 12:30 p.m. in the auditorium foyer. At 1:15 p.m. in room 409L of the Medical School building, Arthur W. Toga, Ph.D., professor of neurology, director of the laboratory of neuroimaging and co-director of the division of brain mapping at the University of California at Los Angeles School of Medicine, will give the opening lecture. Dr. Toga will discuss "Mapping Brain Structure and Function in Health and Disease." He will describe how brain atlases, and the computational tools that align new datasets with them, facilitate comparison of brain data across experiments and laboratories and from different imaging devices. He also will describe the creation of four-dimensional maps that store information on the dynamics of brain change in development and disease.

Poster presentations at 2:30 and 4 p.m. in the auditorium foyer will feature the neuroscience expertise of Health Science Center faculty. More than 60 posters will be presented. Information on the CBN also will be available. A wine-and-cheese reception will follow at 5 p.m. For more information, call (210) 567-4205.
