The Brainbox Initiative is pleased to welcome the 7th annual conference, focused on non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging.

Join us between September 21-23, 2023 at the prestigious Wellcome Collection in central London – a world-renowned venue exploring science, medicine, life, and art – for two days filled with some of the very best non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging research being carried out around the world.

This year, our programme will explore four distinct areas across the two days of talks, including:

  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) techniques;
  • Transcranial electrical stimulation (tES/tDCS/tACS/tRNS) techniques;
  • Transcranial focused ultrasound stimulation (TUS/tFUS) techniques;
  • And neuroimaging and methodologies.

Since its inception in 2017, the Brainbox Initiative Conference has sought to highlight and promote the groundbreaking work being carried out by early and mid-career neuroscientists at the forefront of non-invasive brain stimulation research.

We offer our early-career speakers the opportunity to share their work, research, and insights on stage side-by-side with world-renowned keynote speakers whose distinguished careers have helped to shape the field, as well as providing a supportive, welcoming, and inclusive environment to develop new connections and explore exciting new avenues for research projects.

As well as a range of stimulating talks, the Brainbox Initiative Conference programme is supported by a range of interactive demonstrations and exhibitions of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques in action, giving attendees the opportunity to see some of the latest technologies up close and personal and gain expert technical insights into the development of exciting new systems.

The Brainbox Initiative Conference 2023 will also be followed by a half-day workshop on Saturday, September 23 where attendees will be given the opportunity to join us once again for an in-depth exploration of some of the techniques used throughout the talks at the conference. Space for this workshop is strictly limited, so we encourage interested researchers to register early to avoid disappointment.

We also encourage all interested attendees to submit their own research to present a poster at the conference. Each year, we invite our cohort of poster presenters to join us on stage at the conference to share their research with everyone in attendance of the event – all presenters have the opportunity to support their research with a quickfire, three-minute live pitch to draw attention to the key takeaway messages of their research and spark interest in the conversations that take place in our evening poster hall gatherings. For 2023, the call for posters will remain open until September 1, 2023. Please bear in mind, however, that spaces are limited and call for posters may close early. We recommend interested delegates submit an abstract early to avoid disappointment.
