Organization for Human Brain Mapping - OHBM 2016






The Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) is committed to using neuroimaging technology to discover how the brain works and is dedicated to sharing these discoveries through scientific education and research. We accomplish this goal throughout the year but especially at our Annual Meeting. We encourage you to consider supporting OHBM again by joining us in Geneva, Switzerland June 26-30, 2016.

LABMAN Meeting / 12:00-13:00
Neuroscience and neuroimaging research in Latin America is hindered by a lack of critical mass within any single country. LABMAN ( is an initiative intended to formalize disparate collaborative threads into a Latin American network via exchange of software, data, personnel, training and ideas through a coordinated network, both organizational and electronic. This meeting is intended at recruiting more LA laboratories and members into the network, discussing current and future collaborative projects in the region and share information regarding new developments at the national level.

Anissa Abi-Dargham

Anissa Abi-Dargham, MD, is director of the Division of Translational Imaging at Columbia University. She uses Positron Emission Tomography imaging to study the neurobiology of schizophrenia and addiction. Her research has resulted in seminal findings describing complex topographically specific alterations of dopamine transmission in schizophrenia and their relationship to clinical symptoms, cognition and response to treatment. More recently she has expanded the work in her Division into multimodal imaging by building a multidisciplinary team with expertise in neurocomputational and neurocognitive disciplines. She is Associate Editor for Neuropsychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry, President-Elect for ACNP and a member of the NIMH Board of Scientific Counselors.
