Hey fellow science enthusiasts! If you missed out on all the excitement and groundbreaking moments at this year's Society for Neuroscience (SFN) conference in 2023, fear not! We've got you covered with a recap of the highlights and game-changing insights that took place.

Key Trends at SFN 2023

  1. Advancements in Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs): BCIs have been gaining traction, allowing for direct communication between the brain and external devices. Researchers have been exploring applications in medicine, prosthetics, and even entertainment.
  2. Neuroplasticity and Learning: Understanding how the brain adapts and changes in response to experiences (neuroplasticity) has been a significant focus. This has implications for education, rehabilitation after injury, and understanding disorders such as autism and dyslexia.
  3. Precision Medicine and Personalized Treatments: There has been a growing emphasis on personalized approaches to treating neurological disorders. This involves tailoring treatments based on an individual's genetic makeup, brain imaging, and other factors, aiming for more effective and targeted interventions.

A Myriad of Poster Presentations The poster sessions at SFN never fail to amaze. This year was no exception with over 1500 posters showcased. These posters provided details about studies and experiments with top categories including Biomarkers, Cellular Therapies, and Clinical Trials in Progress.

HistoWiz’s poster presentation at SFN was titled: High throughput multiplex immunofluorescence staining, imaging, and AI-driven analysis shows differences in neural marker localization across disease models.
