About Confrence

Established in the year 1997, Allied Academies Publication is an amalgamation of several esteemed academic and scientific associations known for promoting scientific temperament. 

Allied Academies invites all the participants from all over the world to attend "11th International Conference on Central Nervous System and Neurophysiology”, on September 20-21, 2018 in Rome, Italy which includes prompt keynote presentations, oral talks, poster presentations and exhibitions.

The Central Nervous System (CNS) is a very complex, highly organized structure. It consists of the brain in the skull and the spinal cord, which threads through holes down the middle of the vertebrae (bones that make up the vertebral column ["backbone"]). The front half (roughly) of the CNS organizes and controls movement; the back half receives and processes information from the senses. The CNS is organized as a hierarchy (organized in graded layers, higher layers controlling lower layers as in the military [general > colonel > major > lieutenant]). Each level from the cerebral hemispheres at the top controls the levels below it. Unlike most hierarchies, the higher the level the more parts to it, at least in the brains of mammals, especially humans. The hierarchy has three main levels, cerebral hemispheres > brain stem > spinal cord.

There are many central nervous system diseases and conditions, including infections of the central nervous system such as encephalitis and poliomyelitis, early-onset neurological disorders including ADHD and autism, late-onset neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and essential tremor, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, genetic disorders such as Krabbe's disease and Huntington's disease, as well as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and adrenoleukodystrophy. Lastly, cancers of the central nervous system can cause severe illness and, when malignant, can have very high mortality rates. Symptoms depend on size, growth rate, location and malignancy of tumours and can include alterations in motor control, hearing loss, headaches and changes in cognitive ability and autonomic functioning. A wide range of treatments for central nervous system diseases is currently in progress, these can range from surgery to neural rehabilitation or prescribed medications.

Sessions and Tracks

Central Nervous System
The Central Nervous System (CNS) is a very complex, highly organized structure. It consists of the brain in the skull and the spinal cord, which threads through holes down the middle of the vertebrae (bones that make up the vertebral column ["backbone"]). The front half (roughly) of the CNS organizes and controls movement; the back half receives and processes information from the senses. The CNS is organized as a hierarchy (organized in graded layers, higher layers controlling lower layers as in the military. Each level from the cerebral hemispheres at the top controls the levels below it. Unlike most hierarchies, the higher the level the more parts to it, at least in the brains of mammals, especially humans. The hierarchy has three main levels, cerebral hemispheres > brain stem > spinal cord.

CNS and Neurological Disorders
There are many central nervous system diseases and conditions, including infections of the central nervous system such as encephalitis and poliomyelitis, early-onset neurological disorders including ADHD and autism, late-onset neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and essential tremor, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, genetic disorders such as Krabbe's disease and Huntington's disease, as well as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and adrenoleukodystrophy. Lastly, cancers of the central nervous system can cause severe illness and, when malignant, can have very high mortality rates. Symptoms depend on size, growth rate, location and malignancy of tumours and can include alterations in motor control, hearing loss, headaches and changes in cognitive ability and autonomic functioning. A wide range of treatments for central nervous system diseases is currently in progress, these can range from surgery to neural rehabilitation or prescribed medications.

Neurophysiology and Neuroanatomy
Neurophysiology is the study of the functions of the nervous system. Clinical neurophysiology is the study of the functions of the nervous system in the clinical setting, for diagnostics, treatment, and intensive care purposes. It is a broad field of study because many different levels are involved in the overall functioning of the nervous system and its components. This involves studying the relationship and pathways between the brain and the organs of the body and the nerves that connect them, both sensory, meaning nerves that receive input from sensors, and motor, meaning the nerves that activate the muscle. Thus, neurophysiology studies nervous function ranging from individual nerve cells to the complex behaviours of the central nervous system. Additionally, the nervous system not only functions at the cell and system levels of the organization but also at a mechanistic level, that involves the study of the control or regulatory processes that occur.

CNS Disorders and Therapeutics
Central Nervous System Diseases or Disorders are a group of neurological disorders that affect the structure or function of the brain or spinal cord, which collectively form the central nervous system (CNS). Every disease has its different signs and symptoms. Some of them are a persistent headache, pain in the face, back, arms, or legs, an inability to concentrate, loss of feeling, memory loss, loss of muscle strength, tremors, seizures, increased reflexes, spasticity, paralysis, and slurred speech. There is a wide range of treatments for central nervous system diseases. These can range from surgery to neural rehabilitation or prescribed medications.
Pharmacology of the Blood-Brain Barrier in Targeting CNS Disorders
Animal and Translational Models for CNS Drug Discovery combines the experience of academic, clinical and pharmaceutical neuroscientists in a unique collaborative approach to provide a greater understanding of the relevance of animal models of neuropsychiatric disorders and their role as translational tools for the discovery of CNS drugs being developed for the treatment of these disorders. 


Multiple Sclerosis and Other Immunological and Inflammatory Disorders of the CNS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory, demyelinating central nervous system (CNS) disease involving cells of the adaptive and innate immune systems. This track covers the scientific basis of multiple sclerosis including etiology, epidemiology, and pathogenesis along with the diagnostic process, the course of the disease and prognosis, and the use of MRI in the diagnosis and disease monitoring. Disease-modifying treatment algorithms for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, switching therapy, and progressive multiple sclerosis treatment algorithms are all discussed in detail. It also addresses multiple sclerosis in childhood and pregnancy and includes assessment of alternative therapies.

Metabolic and Degenerative Diseases of the CNS
Metabolic and Degenerative Diseases of the CNS deals with the neuropathology of metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases of various etiologies that exhibit similar CNS changes on CT and MR images. The etiologies may be congenital (e. g., congenital metabolic diseases) or acquired (e.g., metabolic, inflammatory, toxic insults) and result in diffuse or (multi)focal degenerative changes in central nervous tissues.

Demyelinating Disorders of the CNS in Childhood
Although multiple sclerosis and other disorders of myelin formation and repair are most commonly associated with adults, they can also occur in infants, children and adolescents. Up to 5 percent of those with MS experience symptoms before the age of 18, and the number of cases diagnosed is rising. There is a lack of awareness about these diseases in childhood, however, even amongst paediatric neurologists and MS specialists. This track aims at highlighting the differences between management in childhood and in adults pertaining to the diagnosis, course, treatment and biology of paediatric MS, other childhood demyelinating diseases, including acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, optic neuritis, acute complete transverse myelitis and neuromyelitis optica.

Animal and Translational Models for CNS Drug Discovery
The human brain is a uniquely complex organ, which has self-evolved into a sophisticated protection system to prevent itself injury from external insults and toxins. Designing molecules that can overcome this protection system and achieve optimal concentration at the desired therapeutic target in the brain is a specific and major challenge for medicinal chemists working in CNS drug discovery. Over the time academic, clinical and pharmaceutical neuroscientists have been trying to provide a greater understanding of the relevance of animal models of neuropsychiatric disorders and their role as translational tools for the discovery of CNS drugs being developed for the treatment of these disorders. It includes the study of leading experts actively involved in the use of animal models for understanding the fundamental neurobiology of CNS disorders and the application of this knowledge to CNS drug discovery, and clinical investigators involved in clinical trials, drug development and eventual registration of novel pharmaceuticals.


Neurorehabilitation for CNS Disorders
The aim of Neuro Rehabilitation goes for enhancing patient function, overall life quality and lessens side effects. The medications or treatment help the patients in exercises of day to day living like eating, dressings, cooking and essential basic tasks. the speech therapy in the recovery program advances the patients perusing, composing and talking abilities. These recovery processes and therapeutic process centres around the recovery of Nervous or neural injuries. Various rehabilitative methodologies are developed and examined. A learning-based approach is supported to encourage neural plastic changes and restoration.

CNS Regeneration: Basic Science and Clinical Advances
Injury to the central nervous system unlike peripheral nervous system injury is not followed by extensive regeneration. It is limited by the inhibitory influences of the glial and extracellular environment. The hostile, non-permissive growth environment is, in part, created by the migration of myelin-associated inhibitors, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, oligodendrocyte precursors, and microglia. The environment within the CNS, especially following trauma, counteracts the repair of myelin and neurons. Growth factors are not expressed or re-expressed. Glial scars rapidly form, and the glia actually produce factors that inhibit re-myelination and axon repair. Pioneering work by Aguayo and colleagues demonstrated that adult mammalian CNS neurons, which normally do not regenerate, are able to grow for long distances into the permissive environment of a peripheral nerve graft (Richardson et al. 1980, 1984; David and Aguayo 1981; Benfey and Aguayo 1982). These studies demonstrated that the environment is a critical determinant of axon regeneration. Subsequently, numerous molecules were identified within the CNS that limit regeneration.

CNS Biomarkers
Biomarkers are measurable biological indicators that are used to diagnose or predict diseases, examine disease progression, and estimate treatment response. Biomarkers help in understanding the development of chronic diseases, its relationship with environmental chemicals, and identify subjects who are at high risk of developing the disease. biomarkers have played a significant role in drug research and development of new drugs and in diagnostics. Moreover, biomarkers play important role in understanding disease mechanism, developing effective treatments, and improve quality of patient care. Considering the complexity of the central nervous system (CNS), biomarkers are now expected to play a significant role in the identification of several neurodegenerative diseases at an early stage, provide enhanced diagnosis, and eventually better treatment.


Electromyography in CNS Disorders
Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). Motor neurons transmit electrical signals that cause muscles to contract. An EMG translates these signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values that a specialist interprets. An EMG uses tiny devices called electrodes to transmit or detect electrical signals.
