The Milan Center for Neuroscience ( was founded in 2014 by the University of Milano-Bicocca to promote high-level multidisciplinary research and education in the field of Neuroscience, fostering collaborations among clinical, molecular, cognitive, imaging, computational and biotechnological fields.

It gathers now more than 300 neuroscientists from 8 Departments of Bicocca and other Universities and Research Institutes of the large Milan Area.

This is the fourth NeuroMi International Meeting. Previous ones have been: 2015-“Imaging of the brain”, 2016-“Prediction and prevention of dementia: new hope”, 2017 -“Personalised Medicine in Multiple Sclerosis”, all organized with major international experts and with stimulating interdisciplinary views.

This meeting will follow the successful multidisciplinary approach, gathering basic scientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, psychologists, rehabilitation specialists. This fertile cross-disciplinary meeting will also provide the opportunity to interact with top level scientists in each field.

The field of brain stimulation is advancing rapidly with breakthroughs in basic, translational, and clinical research. The latest and most important research will be presented at this meeting across these domains, starting with mechanisms of brain plasticity, and going through applications of non-invasive (electrical and magnetic) cortical stimulation to surgical deep brain stimulation in neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Brain stimulation methods are rapidly transforming research on brain mechanisms, from the molecular to the behavioral, and offer new approaches to therapeutics and rehabilitation for brain disorders. In many ways, the field of brain stimulation represents a paradigm shift, integrating and sometimes replacing the prevalent neuropsychopharmacological approaches of the past several decades.

Topics and Key words: Brain Plasticity-Cognitive enhancement-Computer modeling of brain stimulation methods-Deep brain stimulation-Neuropsychiatric disorders (dementia, depression, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, obsessive compulsive disorders, pain, stroke, substance abuse)-Neurophysiology-Neurostimulation-Nutraceuticals-Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS)-Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)-Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)-Vagus nerve stimulation.

The National Commission for Continuing Education has welcomed the provisional accreditation of the SIN (Italian Society of Neurology) as CME PROVIDER (assigned number 1802).
The ECM Accreditation for Congress "Brain Stimulation and Brain Plasticity: from Basic Research to Clinical Practice" has been requested for the following positions:

  • Psychologist
  • Medical Doctor (topic areas: neurologist, clinical biochemistry, pharmacology, medical genetics, geriatric medicine, general medicine, nuclear medicine, neurosurgery, neurology, psychiatry, radiology, food science)
  • Neurofisiopathology technician

All professions and disciplines not set out in the previous list are excluded from the acquisition of CME credits, but can still take part in the event (provided the classroom has not reached the maximum limit of attendance required under accreditation).
