Keynote Speaker

Miguel Valencia Ustárroz, Ph.D.

Universidad de Navarra, Spain.

Miguel Valencia

In 2001 I graduated in Telecommunication Engineering and completed an Expert in Biomedical Engineering from the Public University of Navarra. In 2003 I joined the Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA) where I obtained a Ph.D. (2006) in Physics and Applied Mathematics in collaboration with the Department of Physics of the University of Navarra. From 2007 to 2009, I was a postdoctoral fellow in a CNRS lab in Paris. In May 2009 I returned to the CIMA as a junior researcher in the Clinical Neurophysiology Lab.

In my talk I’ll give you a glimpse of how we focus our work in a lab that has evolved from clinical to experimental neurophysiology. I’ll tell you about our investigations on PD patients implanted with DBS stimulators, our setups in animal models for PD, AD and schizophrenia together with the signal analysis procedures and technologies in use in our lab.
