Why  Brescia?


Last  not  least,  it  is  worth  menFoning  the  cultural  and   historical   reasons   which   have   allowed   Brescia   to  


become  in  2011  a  Unesco  World  Heritage  Site,  thanks   There   are   numberless   reasons   for   coming   to   Brescia   in

Numberless  reasons  for  you:  

Brescia  is  the  place  where  the  eight  previous  successful   Symposia  were  held  with  the  scienFfic  contribuFon  and   parFcipaFon   of   Rita   Levi   Montalcini,   Nobel   Prize   for   Medicine  and  our  past  Honorary  President.     Brescia   is   the   place   where   the   FoundaFon   started   the   basic   research   on   spinal   cord   lesions   which   allowed   us   to   take   the   first   steps   in   successful   surgical   procedures   to   make   paraplegics   walk   again.   This   was   possible   thanks   to   an   outstanding   interdisciplinary   work   carried   out   by   a   number   of   professors   of   the   School   of   Medicine-­‐University  of  Brescia.

Dear Colleague, Rita  Levi  Montalcini  had  no  doubts  when  she  said  that  the   most   important   thing   to   occur   in   Neuroscience   in   the   last   40  years  is  the  fall  of  the  barriers  that  isolated  researchers  

I am glad to announce the 9th International Symposium of Experimental Spinal Cord Repair and Regeneration, on the multidisciplinary approaches to the research and treatment of Spinal Cord Injuries.

«Once  upon  a  /me  anatomists,  physiologists,  neurologists,   all   considered   the   Nervous   System   as   something   that   was   to   a   certain   point   their   own   exclusively   property.   Luckily   nowdays   this   has   changed,   and   now   that   the   barriers   are   not  there  any  more,  each  expert  has  the  chance  to  access   this   field.   In   most   recent   years   computer   scien/sts,

Many outstanding scientific personalities have assured their participation. They will present their latest research in the field of molecular biology, normal and electronic histology, neurotransmitters and receptors, pharmacology, immunology, stem cells, electrophysiology, neurorehabilitation and functional electrical stimulation. New imaging techniques for spinal cord injuries as well as new surgical attempts to cure paraplegia will be presented. A special session will be dedicated to young researchers and their discoveries. We would be really pleased if you would come. Hoping to see you in Brescia, best regards
