Newborn Brain Symposium (previous year's program 2018)

Boston, MA US
October 2, 2019 to October 4, 2019

This three-day symposium will provide state-of-the-art education both on the basics and recent outbreaks in the field of neonatal neurology and brain development. This unique event will host world-renowned national and international experts to give updates on areas covering the full spectrum of this important field. In addition to didactic presentations, this symposium will provide hands on workshops and small group case discussions for different areas of neonatal neuroimaging, and neuromonitoring.

Target Audience

Neonatal Intensive Care Physicians (neonatologists and neurologists), fellows, nurses and allied health professionals.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the symposium, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the normal development of the structure and function of the newborn brain.
  2. Describe the causes of injury or abnormal development in premature infants including the effect of environment and nutrition.
  3. Provide basic neurobehavioral assessment and feeding evaluation.
  4. Interpret basic findings of neonatal cEEG, aEEG, and NIRS.
  5. Interpret basic findings of neonatal head ultrasound and brain MRI.
  6. Recognize the pathophysiology and possible available therapies of neonatal brain conditions such as neonatal encephalopathy, stroke, seizures, in addition to genetic, metabolic, neurodegenerative and neuromuscular disorders.
  7. Describe the long term neurodevelopmental outcome of at risk neonates.
