A hands on stroke workshop for physical and occupations therapists
Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the US and its incidence is not changing. “I-TREAT” (Instruction in Techniques to Rehabilitate, Evaluate, and Assess in Stroke) brings together leaders in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and neuroscience to provide clinicians with hands on training in stroke treatment, evaluation, and assessment.

NINDS is intent on setting up a network of stroke research centers throughout the country to execute and help coordinate stroke trials in the US. The network will be tasked to balance their portfolio between stroke prevention, treatment and rehabilitation/recovery. We are now reaching out to the community to make them aware of this opportunity. Two RFAs are now public, one for regional stroke trial centers and one for a national coordinating center (http://www.ninds.nih.gov/funding/funding_announcements/rfa/RFA-NS-13-012.htm ). Dr. Landis’s most recent Directors message explains how the initiative was conceived. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/find_people/ninds/OSPP/Stroke-Research-Priorities-Meeting-2012.htm.

ASNR Annual Meeting
ASNR is excited to announce the annual meeting will be held this year in conjunction with the Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Diego, CA, on November 7-8, 2013.
The ASNR is excited to announce a new, two-day format for its annual meeting, based on previous successful satellite meetings at the Society for Neuroscience. The first day will consist of a morning plenary session, a mid-afternoon poster session and afternoon talks. The plenary will center around the timely topic of predicting variable phenotypic responses to neurorehabilitation and the afternoon talks are on the topics of imaging and neurophysiology. All of the sessions are meant to discuss methological and conceptual ideas applicable across several neurological disease entities. There will be, what we hope to be a stimulating, pro/con debate to close the first day with ample time for discussion throughout. The second day, sponsored by NIH, will be centered on motor rehabilitation, with a morning session that is translationally oriented and two keynote lectures by internationally renowned speakers. The afternoon sessions are oriented toward more basic and computational motor science. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend!
We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
