ECoG MASTERCLASS 2023 at OHBM, Montreal, Canada

September 26, 2023, 08:00-19:00 (Eastern Time)

Join us as we dive into the realm of cutting-edge electrocorticography (ECoG), stereo EEG and functional brain mapping research.



Welcome to an extraordinary journey into the fascinating world of Electrocorticography (ECoG) Masterclass! In this exclusive program, we will delve deep into the realms of neuroscience, neurotechnology, and medical breakthroughs. Our masterclass is a unique opportunity to explore specialized topics that are at the forefront of ECoG research. From unraveling the rhythmic entertainment in cortical dynamics to deciphering the complexities of natural speech perception and production, we’ll traverse the spectrum of cognitive mysteries.

But that’s not all – our journey will also take us into Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), where the boundaries between mind and machine blur, and functional mapping techniques that unlock the secrets of the brain’s inner workings. Furthermore, we’ll venture into the world of rapid cortical mapping in epilepsy patients, where our understanding can make a life-changing difference.

Prepare to be inspired, enlightened, and empowered as we bring together leading experts, innovative methodologies, and cutting-edge technology.
