Introduction to the Field of Neuroscience:
Neuroscience is one of the most important components of science which covers structure and functioning of the whole nervous system. The field of neuroscience includes basic scientists, neuro-immunologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrist, neuropsychologists, neuro-radiologists, neuro-rehabilitation, and so forth. There are more than 5 million neuroscientists across the globe, mostly located in developed countries. Furthermore, neurosciences contribute to 10% of all research and 20% of all health sciences research; hence, making it a key area of focus.
The OIC region is vast and diverse, comprising of many developing and under-developed countries which are still in need of skills and knowledge in scientific research for the healthcare sector. This international conference of Neuroscience aims to build capacity of health professionals in neurological care, and to promote networking among experts of OIC countries especially the least developed African countries.
Scientists, researchers, academicians, graduate students, neuroscientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrist, neuro-psychologists, neuro-radiologists from the OIC countries are encouraged to participate.
