Selected Highlight Talks

All participants who have been accepted to present a poster at the Symposium and are listed as the presenting author will be eligible for presenting their research as a brief invited Highlight Talk. We will select several exciting and innovative Highlight Talks that span a broad range of neuromodulation topics. The Highlight Talks will take place before the poster viewing session, allowing the speakers to provide a brief overview of their research to attract viewers to their posters. The selected speakers will be notified by March 14, 2016. Selected speakers who are non-faculty presenters will still be eligible for the Poster Award Competition.
