Neurocon 24 Official Poster

This year, Neurocon 24, the Conference on Addiction, brings together cutting-edge research and innovative interventions to address the complex challenges of addiction in today's society.

 

The conference will gather experts and enthusiasts from various fields to explore the latest advances in addiction treatment, neurobiology, genetics, behavioral addictions, and prevention strategies.

Day 1

Neurobiology and Genetics of Addiction Perspective:

We will delve into the new findings in the fields of neurobiology and genetics in addiction. We will discuss genetic and epigenetic markers associated with addictive behavior, the role of gut microbiota in alcohol consumption, and the functional networks of key brain regions such as the orbitofrontal cortex and nucleus accumbens. At the same time, we will discuss the groundbreaking research that has revolutionized our understanding of addiction at a molecular level.

 

Pharmacology Perspective:

From this perspective, we will extensively discuss the latest discoveries in the field. Together with our guests, we will debate the current trends in addiction pharmacology.

 

Day 2:

 

Prevention Strategies Perspective:

In this section, which has been widely discussed globally in recent times, we will talk about the best prevention programs, what makes them unique, and the ideal ways to develop new projects with increased effectiveness in addiction prevention. We will address education, media literacy programs, advocacy for responsible substance use, as well as support services that empower individuals to make informed choices and resist addictive behaviors. Discover how promoting healthy habits and raising awareness can mitigate the negative consequences associated with addiction in different domains. 

Neuropsychiatry Team Perspective:

We will discuss the current trend in addiction treatment at the national and global levels.

Together, we will delve into the psychological and pharmacotoxicological aspects of substance abuse. We will also cover current concepts from advanced research and how we move from the addicted brain to specific pharmacological treatments for different substances. From the perspective of neuropsychiatric studies, we will shed light on comorbid disorders and innovative pharmacotherapy techniques.

 

Day 3:

 

Behavioral Addiction Perspective:

We will discuss the complexity of behavioral addictions from multiple perspectives. We will address the excessive use of social networks, media environments, gambling, food consumption, and sexual tendencies. Together, we will understand the behavioral mechanisms and their profound impact on mental health, relationships, and social dynamics. Our goal is to demystify the complex challenges arising from behavioral addictions and provide strategies for promoting healthier habits and prevention methods.

 

Interventions Perspective:

We will discuss groundbreaking studies on innovative interventions for addiction, particularly non-invasive interventions that have yielded excellent results. Then, we will discuss the integration of classical psychedelics into current treatment models for substance-related disorders, the use of low-intensity focused ultrasound, and reconsolidation interventions in virtual reality. We will explore the most promising treatments for substance-related disorders through innovative modalities.

Join the Conference on Addiction to be part of a transformative journey towards understanding, treating, and preventing addiction in all its forms.

Unveiling New Frontiers in Neuroscience Research

 

Neurocon 2023, an online event held on October 27-28, 2023, was organized by the Mindlifeline Association and proved to be an exceptional gathering dedicated to in-depth explorations in neuroscience, neurobiology, and neuropsychology for the scientific community.

 

The presentations were truly valuable, and we invite you to watch the recordings from the Neurocon 23 conference on the conference website, www.neurocon.eu.

 

The central theme of the conference was the degenerative Alzheimer's disease, and participants had the privilege to explore new methods of identifying this condition and become acquainted with innovative research on the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

 

The event included two panel discussions, each addressing the unique perspective of neuroscience research. The first panel was moderated by Ph.D. Candidate Cristiana Dimulescu from Technische Universität Berlin, focusing on advanced research in neuroscience. The second panel discussion was moderated by Ph.D. Candidate Léa Chibany from University of Bordeaux, focusing on the development of a new type of vaccine to combat the effects of Alzheimer's disease. A significant contribution was also made by Professor Maria Theresa Fiorenza from the University of Sapienza in Rome.
