Virtual Event February 2021

virtual event website

Dear all,

The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to postpone our annual in person meeting to September 2021. In the meantime, we will organize an interim virtual event on the 18th of February 2021. We will have a discussion of basic aspects of spreading depolarizations (SDs), a virtual journal club discussion of recent papers, and a look into the future of upcoming trials.

The virtual event is free and open to everyone interested. Please register via the virtual event website to receive online meeting information and updates. The virtual event will begin with an “Ask the Expert” session. This is an educational opportunity for attendees to ask questions and raise topics that they would like to be clarified or addressed.

Attendees are invited to submit questions about SDs in advance by email to icsd2021@univ-lyon1.fr

Before asking your questions, you may find basic and advanced information about spreading depolarizations on the links below:
