2e Symposium québécois sur la neurostimulation (SQN)

In recent decades, several techniques have been developed to stimulate the central nervous system. Today, researchers and clinicians use neurostimulation to study and better understand how the brain works, but also to treat various pathologies affecting the central nervous system.

In the light of the success and positive feedback following our first edition, the “Groupe de Recherche sur les Aînés, la Neurostimulation et la Douleur” are proud to announce the second edition of the Quebec Symposium on Neurostimulation (SQN), a scientific event (free for students) held online the October 28th and 29th 2021.

This symposium provides a unique opportunity to bring together members of industry, clinicians, researchers, and students interested in the use of neurostimulation in neurosciences. By encouraging the presence of speakers and presenters from various fields, this initiative will allow participants to discover and appreciate several possible applications of neurostimulation, both from a mechanistic and therapeutic perspective, and to foster the establishment of collaborations between researchers, clinicians, and industry.

Please note that registration for students is FREE.
Registration for researchers, clinicians, and other non-student participants is $150.
