On Wednesday, Sept. 14, the CPSR will hold its Annual Scientific Meeting for members and funded researchers at the Palace Royal Hotel in Quebec City, followed by a dinner and panel discussion on the timing and intensity of post-stroke rehabilitation. Both events — the Annual Scientific Meeting and Advances in Stroke Recovery — require pre-registration.
The Annual Scientific Meeting begins at 8 am with a breakfast buffet at the Hotel Palace Royal, followed by a brief update on the CPSR from the management team. From 9 am to 10:30 am, a four-person panel of experts (covering topics from stem cells to transcranial magnetic stimulation to optogenetics to imaging) will probe Promising Regenerative Interventions for stroke recovery. From 11 am to 12:30 pm, a second panel will discuss Promising Therapeutic Interventions for stroke recovery (covering topics from exercise to robotics to tablet technologies). In the afternoon, interactive breakout sessions will focus on Forging New Priorities and Collaborations in the areas of Telerehabilitation, Exercise and Cognition, Regenerative Approaches, and Clinical Trials. The meeting ends at 4 pm.
