Meeting Description:

The Institute for Mind and Brain at the University of South Carolina is organizing a one-day conference on Neural Plasticity and Learning, Friday, October 23, 2015, Columbia Convention Center, Columbia, South Carolina.

This is the first in a series of annual forums for highlighting current topics in neurocognition. Presentations will address topics ranging from the basic science of neural plasticity to plasticity within specific cognitive domains (language, memory, motor learning), application of neuromodulatory tools to enhance plasticity and the role of neural plasticity in cognitive rehabilitation.

The conference features four external invited speakers (Paul Reber, Michal Ben-Shachar, Marcus Meinzer, and Gottfried Schlaug), as well as invited contributions by local researchers. We are also inviting submissions for a poster session.
