8:00:8:30 Registration and Coffee
8:30-9:30 The Consumer Market for Neurotechnology
James Cavuoto, Editor and Publisher, Neurotech Reports
In this session, we explore the emerging consumer market for neurotechnology products. This includes applications of neurostimulation and neurosensing systems for market research, training, simulation, entertainment, and gaming.
9:30-10:00 The Market for Noninvasive Stimulation
Manuel Lopez-Figueroa, Ph.D., Vice President, Bay City Capital
In this session, we look at new low-cost noninvasive brain stimulation systems, such as tDCS, tACS, and rTMS devices. Topics to be considered include applications, regulatory factors, distribution, and stimulation parameters.

Coffee Break


Progress in Brain-Computer Interfaces
Chad Bouton, Research Leader, Battelle Memorial Institute
In this session, we'll get an update on recent advances in BCI technology, both for neuroprosthetics and consumer applications.


The Market for Neurosensing Systems
There has been much consolidation in the neurosensing industry in recent years, as smaler vendors of EEG, EMG, and brain analysis systems have been gobbled up by larger firms. In this session, we'll examine the market opportunity for new neurosensing devices and technologies.

12:00-1:30 Luncheon

Neurotechnology Entrepreneur Panel
James Cavuoto, Editor, Neurotech Reports, Moderator

This session features presentations from CEOs and executives of several neurotechnology start-up firms and more established technology ventures. Each executive will present an overview of their firm's technology and markets.

2:15-3:00 Neurotech in the Home
Roger Quy, Ph.D., General Parter, Technology Partners, Moderator
In this session, we examine the implications of distributing neurotech products directly to consumers for use at home. We'll cover applications areas such as sports, gaming, cognitive enhancement, as well as regulatory and channel marketing issues.
3:00-3:30 Refreshment Break

Cortical Plasticity and Brain Fitness
In this session, we examine the market for brain fitness products, including software and hardware systems that take advantage of the phenomenon of cortical plasticity. We'll look at new applications, new competitors, and the potential for new partnerships.


Last Resort Syndrome: Using Neurotech Sooner
Jennifer French, Executive Director, Neurotech Network, Moderator
In this session, we consider the implications of the "last resort syndrome," whereby neurotech device therapies are only used after exhausing all other therapies. We'll look at examples of efforts to make neurotech more of a front-line defense in treating neurological disorders.

5:00-7:00 Cocktail Reception
