Neurotechnology Events and Brain Fitness Panel

Zack Lynch has post­ed a cal­en­dar of key Fall 2006 Neu­rotech­nol­o­gy events.

Next one: 6th Annu­al Neu­rotech Lead­ers Forum, Sep­tem­ber 28–29, San Fran­cis­co. Zack writes “If you want to stay on the cut­ting edge of advance­ments in neu­rode­vices, then don’t miss Cavuoto’s con­fer­ence now in its’ sixth year.”

James Cavuo­to has been kind enough to extend me an invi­ta­tion, and I will blog the high­lights of the event.

You can check more infor­ma­tion on oth­er con­fer­ences in his post, includ­ing the mas­sive Neu­ro­science 2006 in Octo­ber where The Neu­rotech­nol­o­gy Indus­try Orga­ni­za­tion will be for­mal­ly launched.

Zack also announces, for ear­ly birds, the Neu­rotech Indus­try Invest­ing and Busi­ness con­fer­ence on May 17–18, 2007 in San Fran­cis­co, put togeth­er by Neu­roIn­sights.

High­ly rec­om­mend­ed con­fer­ence for any­one work­ing on phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, med­ical devices, diag­nos­tics and neu­rotech­nol­o­gy in gen­er­al, and with added val­ue for any­one inter­est­ed in see­ing me mod­er­ate what I hope will be a ground­break­ing pan­el:

Title: Brain Fit­ness Through Soft­ware and Neu­ro­feed­back

Descrip­tion: Spurred by the dis­cov­ery of neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty, the aging baby boomer pop­u­la­tion and demand for safe treat­ments for child­hood ADHD, soft­ware com­pa­nies, large and small, are ven­tur­ing into the realm of ther­a­py and cog­ni­tive fit­ness. Ven­ture investors are drawn by the poten­tial of the large mar­kets, lack of FDA involve­ment, and scal­a­bil­i­ty of the soft­ware mod­el. What chal­lenges are com­pa­nies fac­ing? What effi­ca­cy para­me­ters are required for suc­cess?
