NoTremor Workshop in conjunction with VPH 2016

26 Sep 2016

NoTremor organised a Satellite Workshop at VPH 2016: "Multi-Scale Modeling and Simulation and Analytics for Parkinson’s disease". The scope of the satellite event was to provide a platform for new ideas, achievements and implementations in the field of computational modeling for Parksinson's disease (PD). Discussions included, but are not limited to, the latest scientific and technical outcomes of NoTremor project. Researchers also are invited to submit their work to the satellite event on “Multi-Scale Modeling and Simulation and Analytics for Parkinson’s disease” following the deadlines, rules and formatting guidelines of the VPH 2016 conference.

During the workshop the topics included: 

  • Brain modeling and simulation for PD at all scales of analysis: from neural membranes to systems
  • Neuromuscular simulation and its interaction with brain modelling
  • Modelling of motor control
  • Subcortical LFP modelling
  • Clinical assessment (typically performed for neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease)
  • New ICT measurement techniques (e.g. oculometry, biomechanical movements, latencies, dynamics)
  • Simulation platforms
  • Information visualization and visual analytics for PD

The agenda which was followed during the organised satellite workshop is presented below:

  • 16.25-16.30: Welcome to the session – Introduction
  • 16.30-16.50: Alex Blenkisop et all. - Towards an understanding of motor behaviour in Parkinsons’ disease: a model of a simple fingeraiming task
  • 16.50-17.10: Sebastian James et all.- Integrating brain and biomechanics for the study of Parkinson’s disease
  • 17.10-17.30: Dimitar Stanev et all. - Neuromusculoskeletal Inertial Filtering of Centrally Generated Beta Oscillations in Parkinson's Disease
  • 17.30-17.50: J Lewis et all. - Towards a two-process model of antisaccades in Parkinson’s disease
  • 17.50-18.10: Mauro Da Lio et all. - A novel tablet-computer based motor test for measuring and monitoring motor disabilities and in particular PD
  • 18.10-18.30: Panagiotis Moschonas et all. - Visualising Clinical and Patient Test Data for Parkinson’s Disease using Multi-Objective Analysis

In the same VPH event, a dedicated stand of the NoTremor project has been hosted,  showcasing the best of the NoTremor Research and Innovation results in the Parkinson disease but also in the VPH domain.
