The 1st International Mobile Brain/Body Imaging Gathering will be held June 7th / 8th (Asia/Pacific), featuring a look at the past, present, and future of Mobile Brain-Body Imaging with talks by some of the founders of the field as well as Keynotes from the postponed MoBI conference (now to be held in June 2022) and additional talks across the range of MoBI applications. We will have live socializing, discussion with speakers, networking and poster viewing on Gather.Town after the talks. 

This virtual gathering will help us stay connected, filling the place of the originally scheduled in-person conference, which as been postponed to June 3-7, 2022.

Mobile Brain/Body Imaging (MoBI) is a new imaging approach employing mobile brain imaging methods synchronized to body motion capture and other behavioral and psychophysiological data streams to investigate the brain dynamics accompanying natural cognitive and affective processes as humans interact with their environment and with others. It is a form of real-world neuroimaging.
