Simpósio de Neuroimagiologia Estrutural e Funcional

Entre 18 e 20 de Julho de 2008 terá lugar, na Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Coimbra (FMUC), o Simpósio de Neuroimagiologia Estrutural e Funcional, com a presença de especialistas nacionais e internacionais, nomeadamente da Harvard Medical School e Massachussets General Hospital.

De acordo com o website da FMUC «os objectivos básicos deste Simpósio radicam na promoção da compreensão do potencial das novas descobertas usando técnicas de imagem e neurofisiológicas, que nos permitem compreender melhor a função do sistema nervoso na saúde e na doença, e em particular no envelhecimento.»
