Charlie Stagg organised the symposium on non-invasive brain stimulation, sponsored by Rouge Resolutions.

Symposium Title: 'Towards a causal understanding of motor learning in humans: a role for non-invasive brain stimulation'

This symposium also featured talks from Dr Sheena Waters, Dr Joe Galea and Prof. Edwin Robertson.

Charlie's Talk: 'Combining non-invasive brain stimulation with magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy to probe motor learning'

James Kolasinski organised the symposium on the use of 7T MRI, sponsored by Oxford Neuroscience.

Symposium Title: MRI at 7 Tesla: new capabilities and insights

This symposium also featured talks from Dr Andrew Welchman, Dr Ivan Alvarez and Prof. Penny Gowland.

James' Talk: 'Somatosensory plasticity at 7T: fMRI, spectroscopy and behaviour' focused on how he has developed techniques to map, manipulate and understand representations of individual fingers in the somatosensory cortex.

Jacob Levenstein presented a poster: 'Clinical Acute Stroke Imaging of Motor Deficits using VLSM and White Matter Track Based Analyses'

This poster was selected as one of 30 to be given as a 3-minute quick-fire oral presentation on the first afternoon of the conference.
