Last Call for Entries: Submit Videos to Neuro Film Festival by February 16th

13.01.2010
Win up to $1,500 and Attend 2010 Neuro Film Festival in Toronto

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.

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
