6th BigBrain Workshop: From Microstructure to Functional Connectomics  
Tuesday, October 25, 2022 - Thursday, October 27, 2022
Zadar, Croatia

Announcing the 6th BigBrain Workshop: From Microstructure to Functional Connectomics, taking place in person on October 25-27th in Zadar, Croatia.

Researchers from our global network (and beyond) are encouraged to present their work and to discuss future prospects of the BigBrain data and tools, in particular exchange views on how to better leverage high performance computing and artificial intelligence to create multimodal, multiresolution tools for the high-resolution BigBrain and related datasets.  We are pleased to announce Prof MuMing Poo (trailblazer in mesoscopic atlases) and Prof Ivica Kostović (pioneer in developing neuroanatomy) as our keynote speakers.

Registration is now open. More information regarding abstract submission and accommodation in Zadar can be found online at .

The BigBrain Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Autumn HBP Young Researchers Event, taking place as a full day satellite event on October 25th at the conference venue (see up-to-date information on the Human Brain Project's website:

5th Mapping Course (Bellvitge)  
Tuesday, November 15, 2022 - Friday, November 18, 2022

After more than 20 years of experience in using the intraoperative mapping techniques and neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring for the resection of brain lesions located in supratentorial eloquent areas, we are pleased to offer you a full course which comprises the anatomic and theoretical basis for the implementation of these techniques, some practical sessions (white matter fiber tractography using DTI for intraoperative navigation, fiber dissection and CUSA ultrasonic aspirator usage course both in cadaveric specimens) to finalize with two live broadcast surgeries with the application of the subject taught.

It is mainly a practical course which arises from our department experience. We have designed it in the "how I do it" format, with the participation of the corresponding professionals of all the fields implied in the brain mapping process: from the preoperative planning to the surgery, and even the postoperative follow up. We have enriched the course with our know-how, hoping that this 5th Mapping Course in Bellvitge is useful and enjoyable for all of you, with the plus of the course laying in the marvelous city of Barcelona, which will undoubtedly turn out to be an extra appeal.
