LC Meeting 2019

LC Meeting

Dear LC enthusiasts,

It is with great pleasure that we announce our second Locus Coeruleus imaging meeting in Magdeburg on the 12/13th of December 2019.

Please contact us (ideally before August 31st) if you wish to participate at this years meeting.

At this years LC meeting, we aim to focus on the following questions:

  1. How can we improve structural / functional / PET LC imaging?
  2. What is the role and fate of the LC in neurodegenerative and clinical conditions? What renders the LC particularly vulnerable?
  3. What have we learned (also from animal research) on the LCs role in cognition and behavior in the last years?
  4. What are the most promising interventions targeting the LC/NA system?

 

Programme

At this years LC meeting, we aim to focus on the following questions:

1. How can we improve structural / functional / PET LC imaging?

2. What is the role and fate of the LC in neurodegenerative and clinical conditions? What renders the LC particularly vulnerable?

3. What have we learned (also from animal research) on the LCs role in cognition and behavior in the last years?

4. What are the most promising interventions targeting the LC/NA system?

We will post a detailed program on the website and send it via email to all registered users at a later date. Please see information on our previous meeting held last February and the resultant consensus paper summarizing how LC imaging can be used for clinical research in neurodegenerative diseases.

New for this years meeting are 1-2 methods workshops for those interested:

  • A two day hackathon (Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th) where MR physicists will do some hands-on tests to explore new imaging approaches (this will be mostly relevant for MR physicists doing LC imaging)
  • If there is enough interest, an extra session on LC methods in animal research (electrophysiology, high-field imaging, optogenetics, ...) which will take place on Saturday 14th. Please let us know if you would like to join either of these!

Venue

Flughafen Berlin Schönefeld → Magdeburg

B Scho_nefeld

Schönefeld Airport has a railway station that provides connections (regional and S-Bahn trains) to Berlin's center and surrounding areas. The railway station is just a five-minute walk from the airport via a covered walkway. Train tickets from Berlin-Schönefeld Flughafen to Magdeburg Hbf can be bought at the ticket machines at the airport railway station.

 

Flughafen Berlin Tegel → Magdeburg

B Tegel

VBB Tickets for local transport can be purchased at the “Tourist-Info” or at the ticket machines outside Terminal A. You need to take a bus (TXL to main station, 109 to Charlottenburg or X9) to get to the next train station. Please remember to validate your ticket when you get on the bus. VBB tickets are not valid for long-distance travel. Train tickets to Magdeburg Hbf can be purchased at the ticket machines at the train stations.

Accomodation

Hotel recommendation: Hotel Motel One or B&B Hotel Magdeburg

Rooms are reserved from 11 to 14 December 2019. For booking use the password: "LC-Meeting".

Accomodation → DZNE

The tram station is just a two-minute walk from the Hotel Motel One. Go to “Breiter Weg’’. There is the tram station “Domplatz/ Volksbank”. Take the number 9 (direction: Reform) or number 6 (direction: Leipziger Chaussee). Get off the tram either at “Universitätsklinikum” or at “Fermersleber Weg”. The DZNE is located on Medical Campus of the University (Building 64, Leipzigerstraße 44).

Medical Campus

LC Meeting 2018
  • Last years meeting brought together cognitive neuroscientists and clinicians interested in LC and noradenaline function, MR physicists, neurobiologists, and neuropathologists.
  • See what we discussed during the meeting in our consensus paper.
