    Dr. Hua is an Associate Professor in the F.M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging at Kennedy Krieger Institute, and the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Hua’s research
    has centered on the development of novel MRI technologies for in vivo functional and physiological imaging in the brain, and the application of such methods for studies in healthy and diseased brains. These include the development of human and animal MRI methods to measure functional brain activities, cerebral perfusion and oxygen metabolism at high (3 Tesla) and ultra-high (7 Tesla and above) magnetic fields. He is particularly interested in novel MRI approaches to image small blood and lymphatic vessels in the brain. Collaborating with clinical investigators, these techniques have been applied 1) to detect functional, vascular and metabolic abnormalities in the brain in neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntingdon’s disease (HD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s
    disease (AD) and mental disorders such as schizophrenia; and 2) to map brain functions and cerebrovascular reactivity for presurgical planning in patients with vascular malformations, brain tumors and epilepsy.

    Jean-Pierre Changeux worked on the bacterial regulatory enzyme, l-threonine deaminase which led to the general discovery that chemical signals that regulate the biological activity of proteins act at “allosteric” sites distinct from the biologically active sites(1961)as a Ph.D. student in Jacques Monod Laboratory, and involved a cooperative conformational transition (Monod-Wyman-Changeux 1965) viewed as a general molecular mechanism of signal transduction. His subsequent career led to the chemical identification of eukaryotic acetylcholine nicotinic receptor, the first identified neurotransmitter/drug membrane receptor and ion channel together with the demonstration of its allosteric properties and of its structural homology with prokaryotic receptors. In addition to the novel concept of allosteric modulators that creates a revolution in the field of drug design, he has brought new perspectives on nicotine addiction, the higher function of the brain and their pathologies.

    Valeria Righi is a researcher at the University of Bologna since 2012. She is professor of biochemistry. Her research activity is focused on metabolomics sciences through the use of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). She was involved in the study of cerebral cancer pathologies and the gastrointestinal system cancer diseases. Recently, she has focused her attention on skin diseases (in particular those defined as non-melanoma skin cancer) to the study of tissues and bio-fluids and also to diseases linked to behavioural disorders due to food. Metabolomics is a science that allows us to evaluate metabolic changes even when histological analyses do not detect cellular alterations. She held part of her doctorate and post-doc at the “Instituto de Investigaciones Biomedicas Alberto Sols” Madrid (Spain) and she was post doc at the Harvard Medical School of Boston (USA) in 2008-2009. She was awarded by L’Oreal and Unesco in 2009.
    She is author and co-author of over 45 publications in high-impact international scientific journals and has presented numerous works at national and international conferences

    Professor Dr Jaseja has worked as a faculty member in a Medical school for more than 33 years. His main research interest has been in epilepsy and epileptogenesis; in 2013, he was ranked Second in Epilepsy Research in India.
    He has published papers on various aspects of epilepsy, especially association of epilepsy with sleep. He had advocated consideration of diagnosis of epilepsy even after the first epileptic attack (in 2009) long before the ILAE definition of epilepsy in 2014 that permits clinical diagnosis of epilepsy even after one epileptic attack associated with a 60% risk of a recurrent attack. Until this definition, clinicians usually waited for occurrence of a second attack thus delaying the initiation of anti-epileptic medication, causing anxiety and stress in the patients due to uncertainty and unpredictability of a second attack.
    His current work has been on Deep brain stimulation (DBS) in intractable epilepsy (IE). He has postulated a new target for DBS, namely Pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN), claiming that its stimulation is superior in therapeutic efficacy and success over the conventional DBS of anterior thalamic nucleus (ATN) in patients with IE.
    In 2005, Dr Jaseja initiated a debate on the epileptogenic potential of Meditation.
    Dr Jaseja has published new guidelines for treatment of patients with cerebral palsy (CP), based on EEG. He has claimed that CP, contrary to popular belief, can change its course and progression with time and therefore, observation of new guidelines, quality of life of patients with CP may be improved.
    Dr Jaseja has studied the effects of vagal nerve stimulation and has shown and claimed its efficacy in patients with CP, post which, CP has been included in the list of indications of VNS, the links to which are: (http://www.aetna.com/cpb/medical/data/100_199/0191.html,http://www.anthem.com/medicalpolicies/policies/mp_pw_a053286.htm).
    Dr Jaseja has worked on interpretation of an EEG and shown how its misinterpretation can be prevented; further, he has also ideated how the yield of EEG-findings can be enhanced in patients with epilepsy. He has shown that the hallmarks of epileptiform activity namely ‘spike’ and ‘sharp’ waves (which hitherto were considered having same significance) posses differential clinical significance especially in patients with epilepsy.
    Interestingly, he has shown that the Indian traditional application of Shoe-smell in Epilepsy has a sound scientific basis. In a small study, shoe smell was reported to posses beneficial effect (reduction in duration and severity) during an epileptic attack.
