Thread: Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans Nov 8-12

  1. #1

    Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans Nov 8-12

    Batten down your hatches. A storm is coming. As many as 30,000 neuroscientists will congregate in New Orleans on November 8-12, 2003 to discuss everything that has to do with the brain, spinal cord, neurological diseases, and other aspects of our nervous system. http://web.sfn.org/

    On Monday 6:30-8:30, there is a "social" where spinal cord injury scientists are invited to go toast and roast each other. Monday, Nov. 10, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
    N/A
    Social Event
    Morial Convention Center - Room 354
    P.Horner*
    SPINAL CORD INJURY SOCIAL: A TOAST AND ROAST OF REGENERATIONS FINEST.

    You can go to the web site (for free, by just giving an ID) and search for abstracts and presentations, the latest of information. I just did a search for "spinal cord injury" (which is one of the key words) and it found 243 abstracts that will be presented at the meeting. Just for example, here are some interesting preentations just on the first two and half days of the meeting (Saturday and Sunday and part of Monday). There is not enough room to list all the talks and posters.

    For those who are interested in the whole schedule, the attached file is a pdf file that lists all presentations (author, title, time and place) at the Society for Neuroscience meeting that were found with the keywords "spinal cord injury".

    I think I would need all of my brain's plasticity if I went there just to read all the papers...

    steven, here is some homework for you. The attached file contains all the spinal cord injury abstracts of presentations at SfN 2003. I am not sure that I understand why but the number of abstracts was 187 rather than 243, which was what I found on the first search. Nevertheless, there are about 50 pages containing about four abstracts per page in this attached file.

    Dr. Young, are most of the presentations at a conference like this presenting new information? Or is it usually just a rehash of information already published in a journal?

    For example, I noticed the presentation

    Is this new information or old?

  6. #6
    Everybody tries to present new information. If they try to present old information, nobody would go to their posters or presentation. In most cases, the data had just recently published, were recently submitted, or will soon be submitted for publication. Going to this meeting is one of the best ways of finding out where a laboratory is at. The scientists, doctors, and students stand by the poster or at the platform to answer questions. It is a zoo. Probably over 30,000 posters/presentations will be occurring at the meeting. There is not enough time even if one wanted to, to see even a small proportion of the presentations in one's specific field. Wise.

    Dr. Young, some of the papers could be presented at seperate sessions which would add more to the results list when searching under the Itinerary Viewer.

    Steven, there is usually not all that much repetition of papers. I have the CD and will do the search from there rather than through the online search to see if there are any differences. Wise.

    There were 18 scientists who participated in this particular study. Is it significant?

    NEUTRALIZATION OF NGR1 MAY BE SUFFICIENT TO PROMOTE RAT DRG NEURITE OUTGROWTH IN THE PRESENCE OF CNS MYELINE.

    The neuronal leucine rich repeat [LRR] Nogo receptor1 [Nogo66 receptor, NgR1] binds to myelin proteins and mediates inhibition of neurite outgrowth via p75 and rhoA signaling pathways. At least three CNS myelin proteins, Nogo, MAG and OM-gp, bind NgR1. Thus, NgR1-based antagonists may be superior reagents for attenuating the inhibitory effects of CNS myelin than those that target specific myelin proteins e.g. the anti-NogoA antibody, IN-1 or the NogoA derived peptide, NEP1-40, even though both reagents successfully promote neurite outgrowth or axonal regeneration in vitro and in vivo. Recently, two NgR1 homologues, NgRh2 and NgRh3, have been identified. Although they do not bind Nogo and MAG, their relative contributions to axonal regeneration are unclear. We have generated and characterized a murine monoclonal anti-NgR1 antibody, 7E11, an IgG1a molecule that recognizes a unique epitope of 16 amino acid residues located on a LRR domain of rat NgR1. Consistent with previous reports that the LRR domains on NgR1 are necessary for ligand binding, 7E11 competes with all three myelin proteins for binding to rat NgR1 in multiple biochemical and cellular assays. As deduced by sequence comparisons and confirmed by Western analyses, 7E11 does not recognize NgRh2 and NgRh3. However, 7E11 effectively promotes neurite outgrowth in primary rat DRG neurons [p4] that express at least, NgR1 and NgR2, cultured on a CNS myelin substrate. Our in vitro data suggest that targeting NgR1 alone may be sufficient to attenuate the inhibitory effects of CNS myelin prepared from unlesioned tissues.

    ip, this is a collaboration between two major laboratories. One is Stephen Strittmatter's lab at Yale and the other is the Biogen laboratories in Cambridge. A lot of people were involved in the study. Large collaborative groups are getting more and more common in spinal cord injury studies. Wise.
