Neuroscience of Consciousness and Recovery from Coma: T32 Training Program Symposium & Mislow Lecture
MGH-Brown T32 Training Program in Recovery and Restoration of CNS Health and Function, the 2020 John M.K. Mislow, M.D., Ph.D. Memorial Lecture, science blitz presentations by T32 postdoctoral fellows, and a panel discussion on ethics and the neuroscience of consciousness. There will also be an update on the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of consciousness, and the emerging science on the assessment and rehabilitation of people recovering from severe disorders of consciousness.
This activity is intended for graduate students, neuroengineers, neurologists, neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, postdoctoral fellows, psychologists, research fellows from academic institutions and hospitals in the United States.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the criteria that distinguish coma from vegetative state from minimally conscious state.
- Describe key neuroanatomic structures engaged in the maintenance of consciousness.
- Integrate information about clinical trials that use either imaging, deep brain stimulation or pharmacotherapies to promote understanding and/or recovery from severe disorders of consciousness, and to refer patients and their families to appropriate clinical trials.
