Mission

We will bring together researchers developing and using ultrasound stimulation as a tool for cognitive neuroscience and clinical applications. This symposium will have a strongly integrative and translational approach from mechanisms, to neural circuits, to applications, from engineering, to neuroscience, to the clinic.
