About this Event

 

 

Welcome to Cortical Connections 2021

 

Welcome to the first edition of the Cortical Connections 2021 in Latin America. Our goal is to get together international leaders in the field of normal and abnormal wiring of the cerebral cortex, fostering new and fruitful collaborations among participants. 

 

About the Conference

The Cortical Connections is a scientific meeting about developmental anomalies of cortical connectivity (specifically the corpus callosum). Conference speakers include scientists and clinicians from around the world; leading experts from the fields of developmental neuroscience, laboratory genetics, clinical genetics, pediatric neurology, neuroimaging and neuropsychology. 

 

In 2021, the program includes a workshop for clinicians, a family meeting and a research conference that is open to the public.
