About Congress

Human brain mapping, with the aim of understanding the structural-functional connections of the brain, is a subset of neuroimaging, in which after preparing brain images, processing, and analyzing the data, the results will be discussed. Brain mapping techniques are constantly evolving and rely on the development and refinement of image acquisition, display, analysis, visualization, and interpretation techniques. For this purpose, the Iranian Human Brain Mapping (IHBM) congress hosts scientists and enthusiasts of this field every year. The 9th assembly of this conference will be held in person in Iran by the Institute of Medical Science and Technology at the Shahid Beheshti University of Tehran.

• This conference aims to:

Bring researchers who are engaged in fields related to the structure and function of the human brain (specialists in electrophysiology, neuroscience, psychology, medicine, engineering, mathematics, clinical imaging, genetics, etc.) together for the purpose of exchanging information and discussing international achievements on topics such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission imaging (PET), microscopic imaging, electroencephalography (EEG), radiochemistry and radiopharmacology among them and those interested.

• History of the conference:

In 2014, the first gathering of brain mapping in Iran was held with the aim of sharing experiences and discussing techniques and challenges in the field of brain imaging under the initiative of Professor Mojtaba Zarei, the head of the Research Institute of Medical Science and Technology. Since that, with the welcome of researchers and participants, this conference has been held for 8 consecutive years. Even during the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic, this conference has hosted its audience by using virtual platforms (In 2020 and 2021 the congress was held virtually).

All in all, the 9th gathering of the Iranian Human Brain Mapping Congress will be hosted in person from 3rd to 5th of February 2024 at Abu Rayhan Hall at Shahid Beheshti University of Tehran, Iran.
