Only a few weeks remain for people to submit to the 2010 Neuro Film Festival, a contest by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation to help raise awareness through video about brain disorders and the need to support research into preventions, treatment and cures. People who have compelling stories to share regarding how they or a loved one has been affected by a brain disorder are invited to submit a short video to Neuro Film Festival, by February 16, 2010, by visiting http://www.neurofilmfestival.com.
“Patients and caregivers are encouraged to submit short videos to the Neuro Film Festival to help us show why more research is needed into brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, migraine, autism, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, ALS and stroke,” said Christine E. Phelps, Deputy Executive Director of the American Academy of Neurology Foundation. “Tell us your story or the story of a loved one affected by neurologic disorders and you could win up to $1,500 and a chance to have your video shown at the Neuro Film Festival in Toronto in conjunction with the Academy’s 62nd Annual Meeting.”
Video submissions to the Neuro Film Festival should be made at http://www.neurofilmfestival.com by February 16, 2010. Videos should be up to seven minutes in length. Each short film should include the phrase, “Let’s put our brains together to support brain research.”
A video showing how to submit to the Neuro Film Festival is available at http://www.neurofilmfestival.com, on the Neuro Film Festival’s channel on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/neurofilmfest and via Facebook®.
For a complete list of contest rules, visit http://www.neurofilmfestival.com. The public will have the chance to vote for a favorite video after the submissions deadline closes February, 16, 2010.
The Neuro Film Festival is sponsored by PSAV® Presentation Services.
The American Academy of Neurology Foundation (AAN Foundation) raises money to support vital research into the prevention, treatment and cure of brain disorders. The AAN Foundation is committed to improving patient care, quality of life and public understanding of the brain and other neurologic disorders.
The American Academy of Neurology, an association of more than 22,000 neurologists and neuroscience professionals, is dedicated to promoting the highest quality patient-centered neurologic care. A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing, treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
