Le Studium Conference

Introduction

It is a particular pleasure to announce Frontiers in Connectivity: Exploring and Dissecting the Cerebral White Matter, to be held in Tours in next December. We are very proud to concretize this joint symposium with LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies and EANS European Association of Neurosurgical Societies. The understanding of cerebral connectivity is a primary issue in both neuroscience and medicine today. For this reason, this course will have an unprecedented translational structure.  A first part (run by LE STUDIUM) will take place in 5th and 6th of December and will be dedicated to exploration methods. Lecturers from well recognized research entities will share their experience concerning different study techniques. A second part (run by EANS) will take place in 6th and 7th of December and will be dedicated to the dissection of the cerebral white matter in a practical workshop with capacity for 24 participants. This course illustrates the growing importance of the cerebral white matter functional anatomy nowadays. We will have the great pleasure and honor to have a highly qualified faculty from different countries in Europe and America.
