The 1st International Symposium on Transient Dynamic Brain States that took place from March 17th-18th, 2015 in Tübingen, Germany, gathered world-renowned experts from leading research institutes and hospitals to address current topics in the neuroscience of transient brain dynamics. Importantly, future implications of this growing new field for clinical neuroscience were rendered.

The human brain undergoes a continuous transition between functional states allowing for fast and efficient adaptation to the environment. These dynamic brain states are essential for normal brain function, but when disturbed can be associated with severe neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Latest advances in neurotechnology can be used to monitor, analyze and modulate dynamic brain states. Implantable and non-invasive brain-machine interfaces (BMIs), for example, use neuronal signals to control external devices and machines. Electric and magnetic brain stimulation is applied in various CNS disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, depression or chronic pain.

Merging our growing understanding of transient dynamic brain states with most recent developments in neurotechnology will open new doors for more individualized and effective treatment strategies for neurological and psychiatric disorders.

These are the abstracts from the 1st International Symposium on Transient Dynamic Brain States that include contributions by Arnold Mandell, Lüder Deecke, Hal Weinberg, Niels Birbaumer, Margot Taylor, Stephen E. Robinson, Surjo Soekadar, Michael Wibral, Matthew Brooks, Christian Meisel and others.
