Live webinar on Neuronline: Mechanisms of Post-Ischemic Brain Adaptation

Organiser: FENS

Additional Organiser: Society for Neuroscience (SfN)


Attendance type(s): Virtual

Event Dates: 31 Aug 2021

Registration Deadline: 31 Aug 2021

Registration is now open to the webinar “Mechanisms of Post-Ischemic Brain Adaptation” taking place on 31 August 2021 (5:00-6:00 pm CEST). This webinar is organised by FENS and hosted on Neuronline, the SfN virtual platform.

This webinar will discuss mechanisms involved in post-ischemic brain adaptation. The knowledge of these mechanisms may provide information to bring light to those molecular pathways involved in brain protection.

In this webinar, speakers will cover points including:

  • Post-ischemic brain remodelling and plasticity, evaluating pathomechanisms contributing to secondary brain injury and searching strategies that promote neurological recovery in the post-acute stroke phase.
  • What is the function of peripheral events in inducing brain tolerance to stroke?
  • The plethora of factors can influence the tolerance phenomenon occurring during pre-and post-conditioning.
  • Why it is important to escape a neuron-centric view and to consider the role of other cell types, including small vessels, in the mechanism of brain adaptation.
