We are pleased to announce the 39th symposium of the Groupe de Recherche sur le Système Nerveux Central (GRSNC) which is entitled “Dementia and cognition: A vascular perspective”.
This symposium will be held on May 8-9, 2017 at the Université de Montréal, Pavillon 3200 Jean-Brillant, room B-2245 and the organizers are Drs Patrice Brassard (Laval), Claudine Gauthier (Concordia), Hélène Girouard (UdeM), Florencia Iulita (UdeM) and Lisa Marie Munter (McGill).
Research on dementia and cognition has experienced a rapid growth in the last 20 years. It addresses a great diversity of questions and scientific approaches, ranging from animals to humans. In this symposium, we will discuss cutting-edge research on dementia and cognition from a vascular point of view, reviewing the progress that has been made and addressing the central open questions facing this rapidly developing field. In planning the sessions, we have paid particular attention to issues that stretch from the most basic neuroscience all the way to clinical applications. We will highlight converging evidence from the full range of neuroscientific methods applied in this field, considered within a diversity of conceptual frameworks. There will be four sessions of presentations by invited speakers from around the world as well as two contributed poster sessions.
The presentations are regrouped in for sessions:
Biomarkers and vascular risk factors in dementia (Chairperson: Lisa Marie Munter)
· Cerebrovascular functions and dementia: back to basics (Modérateur: Patrice Brassard)
· The continuum from stroke to Alzheimer’s disease (Modératrice: Florencia Iulita)
Prevention, rehabilitation and traitement of vascular dementia (Modératrice: Hélène Girouard)
Lecturers: Philip Ainslie, Philip A. Barber, Steffany Bennett, Patrice Brassard, Philip B. Gorelick, Vladimir Hachinski, Edith Hamel, Richard Hoge, Florencia Iulita, Rajesh N. Kalaria, Amanda J. Kiliaan, Teresa Liu-Ambrose, JoAnne McLaurin, Joel Ramirez, Gary A. Rosenberg, Eric Edward Smith, Bojana Stefanovic, Takashi Tarumi and Donna M. Wilcock.
