3nd World Congress ‘Genetics, Geriatrics and Neurodegenerative Diseases Research’.
“The Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Human Electrophysiology Department of Informatics of the Ionian University in cooperation with the Wilfrid Laurier University are organizing the 3nd World Congress ‘Genetics, Geriatrics and Neurodegenerative Diseases Research’, which will be held in autumn 2018 in Toronto, Canada. The congress includes various issues and roundtables on modern techniques of prevention, treatment and health research on Aging and neurological disorders in general.
The congress , unique in the world that includes three of the most modern and popular disciplines: Genetics, Geriatrics and research and prevention of neurodegenerative diseases, focuses on recent developments concerning the above disciplines, starting from advances in research field and the latest scientific discoveries to the clinical and pharmaceutical applications
Leading scientists and researchers from around the world will discuss the latest major challenges in the field of scientific research, for the new targets of drugs, to develop new biomarkers for new imaging techniques and new protocols for early diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases, and for many other scientific achievements.”.
Scientia Professor of Psychology and Medical Sciences at the University of New South Wales
In the field of neuroscience, Prof. Paxinos is the author of the most cited publication internationally (The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates; Paxinos and Watson, 1986.).This is the third most cited book in science after Molecular Cloning and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Paxinos has published 46 research books, 145 refereed journal articles, 30 book chapters, and 17 CDROMs. He has identified 90 nuclei (areas) in the rat and human brains. Comparing rats and humans, he has identified 61 homologous nuclei. He has identified 180 nuclei and homologies in birds. He was the first to produce a reliable stereotaxic space for the brain of rats, mice, and primates — a factor fueling the explosion in neuroscience research since the 1980s. He developed the first comprehensive nomenclature and ontology for the brain, covering humans, birds, and developing mammals.
In Corfu Greece he presented his first Greek novel called “Κατ’ Εικόνα” .

The Bioinformatics and Human Electrophysiology Lab (BiHELab) focus on recent advances in geriatrics and neurodegeneration, ranging from basic science to clinical and pharmaceutical developments.
BiHELab’s goal is to help bridge the translational gap from data to models and from models to drug discovery and personalized therapy by fostering collaborations and developing original quantitative approaches to biological and clinical problems.
