  • DescriptionThe aim of the Satellite is to share current topics with researchers who are engaged in work related to neuroscience research on exercise and sports based on behavioral neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and neuro-rehabilitation, together with those in fields of physiology, biochemistry, health fitness, and so on. The following are some potential focuses: How do exercise and sports impact brain functions and health? How does exercise contribute to reducing neurodegenerative diseases? What role do brain functions play in exerting human high performance?
    Our committee is comprised of following members: Prof. Pierre Magistretti (KAUST, EPFL, IBRO’s President); Prof. Junichi Nabekura (NIPS, President of FAOPS2019); Prof. Ryoichi Nagatomi (Tohoku Univ., chairperson of JSPFSM negotiations committee); Prof. Ignacio Torres-Aleman (Cajal Institute); Prof. Michael Yassa (UC-Irvine); Prof. Zsolt Radak (Univ. of Phys. Edu. Hungary); Prof. Yu-Min Kuo (NCKU); Prof. Joon-Yong Cho (Korea National Sport Univ.); Prof. Hideaki Soya (Univ. of Tsukuba). Underlined names will be main presenters.
    Our present plan is to schedule the Satellite on Sep.18 (Wed)-19 (Thu) at Tsukuba City (International Congress Center EPOCHAL TSUKUBA; This is just before the IBRO conference at Taegu and the annual meeting of the Japanese Society of Physical Fitness and Sports Medicine (JSPFSM). The date is very convenient for those attending the IBRO conference, and we can use conference rooms in the same Congress Center. To encourage young researcher to attend the satellite, young investigator travel awards will be available.
International Symposium on Neurogenesis, Regeneration and Pain (hosted by Neurospine, ASIA SPINE)

  • DescriptionNeurospine (ISO abbreviated journal name, Neurospine), the official journal of ASIA SPINE, the Neurospinal Society of Japan, Taiwan Neurosurgical Spine Society, and the Korean Spinal Neurosurgery Society, is an international peer-reviewed open-access journal which published quarterly. The journal includes neuroscience and pain research, bone and disc research in the area of spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerve diseases. Neurospine is indexed/tracked/covered by Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), PubMed, PubMed Central, KoreaMed, KoMCI, EBSCO host and Google Scholar. We are working on the more development of the journal. So the event is planned and is planning to be held during the annual meeting of the 10th ASIA SPINE (Sep. 19-21, 2019 Seoul Dragon City, Korea). We are planning to hold the event on Sep. 20 (1:30-5:30pm), invite many experts in Neuroscience from many countries including China, and cover topics on Neuroscience. We expect more than 200 attendees; Neurosurgeons, Orthopedic Surgeon, Neuroscientist. IBRO aims to promote neuroscience research and communication among researchers around the world and has the aims and standards of IBRO with an excellent scientific program. So we strongly want to hold our event as a satellite event of IBRO 2019.
