This satellite workshop in Suwon, Korea shortly after the cessation of BRAIN 2019 (July 4-7, 2019; Yokohama, Japan) will cover latest advances in multi-modal neuroimaging from microscopic to macroscopic spatial scales, where different modalities will highlight functional specificity over selective time scales, to demonstrate new promises and answer longstanding disputes regarding issues of neurovascular coupling and neurometabolic coupling. The two-day satellite meeting will feature cutting-edge sessions composed of invited scientific presentations from world leaders in their respective fields focusing on disciplines ranging from imaging of brain microvasculature, neuronal and glial activities, and energy metabolism to big data science needed for such multi-modal investigations. Specific attention will be given to gain participation from underrepresented groups and educational objectives for young scientists with the scientific community.  Following this satellite meeting, the Bruker BioSpin will organize one-day User meeting on July 11, 2019.

Target Audience

This conference is aimed at researchers interested in the utilization of neuroimaging for elucidation of brain activity, flow, and metabolism, targeting toward basic scientists at all levels (students, trainees, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty) and physicians.

Educational Objectives

Concepts on neuroimaging from microscopic to macroscopic spatial scales

Characterization of neurovascular/neurmetabolic unit with different modalities
