Welcome to NDS-2019

About NDS-2019

We welcome you to the 5th Neurological Disorders Summit on July 18-20, 2019 in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

The summit will provide a unique opportunity to neuroscientists and physicians to share their research and experiences with the leaders in their fields. The program includes keynote speeches from internationally renowned scientists. Each of these speakers helped to shape the modern concepts of neuroscience. In addition, there will be sessions for oral and poster presentations. Presentations in these sessions will provide an overview of the cutting-edge technologies being used to address difficult therapeutic and theoretical issues in neuroscience.

NDS-2019 is unique in its approach of encouraging a dialogue between the basic and clinical scientists. We expect to have these dialogues both during scientific sessions and networking time. We hope to make the summit particularly educational and inspiring for young scientists who will get an opportunity to interact with leading experts.

The host city Los Angeles is home to top medical research centers and laboratories.

It also offers many award-winning ethnic and continental food choices. We take immense pride to welcome you to this exciting summit and hope you will have satisfying academic and social interaction in Los Angeles.

Conference History

4th Neurological Disorders Summit (NDS-2018) organized by USG-United Scientific Group: A non-profit Scientific Organization concluded successfully on July 25, 2018, at Four Points by Sheraton, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

We thank all the participants of NDS-2018 for trusting us and contributing to a global platform where important aspects of various neurological disorders were discussed. The conference had been marked by the attendance of young and brilliant research scholars, industry and business delegates from more than 35 countries.

The summit inaugurated on July 23, 2018, by the Organizing Committee Chairmen; Dr. Rajendra Badgaiyan and Dr. Kenneth Blum. The three-day summit brought together an interdisciplinary group of professionals working on neurological disorders which were divided into different sessions; keynote, oral and poster presentations.

Dr. Stephen Grossberg, Boston University, Boston, MA, USA delivered the first keynote lecture on “Brain Dynamics of Normal and Abnormal Learning, Memory, and Cognition with Applications to Alzheimer’s Disease, Amnesia, Autism, and Neglect”. Dr. Grossberg discussed Adaptive Resonance Theory (ART) which is a neural model that explains normal and abnormal brains may learn to categorize and recognize objects and events in a changing world and how learned categories may be stably remembered. It was then followed by a keynote lecture of Dr. Kalpna Gupta (University of Minnesota Medical School, MN, USA) on "Manipulation of the Brain’s Serotonergic System by Diet and Companionship" in which she spoke about Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and its characterization by neurobehavioral alteration. Dr. John M Baumann, an internationally-recognized inspiring success speaker diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 41, encouraged medical personnel to go beyond the clinical role and provide a broader perspective on the effects of Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Jin Jun Luo from Temple University, PA, USA talked about "Mitochondrial Myopathy" in his keynote address.

We look forward to having your active contribution and support for the success of NDS-2019.
