Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to cordially invite you to course, the cerebral white matter: functional anatomy and surgical applications (Hands-On) to be held September 21-22, 2018 in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

Cochabamba is a city in central Bolivia. Open arms of a gentle "Cristo de la Concordia" (Christ of the Concord) crown the peak of the San Pedro hill. Paternal and charitable, the image blesses and watches over, while observing to its feet the magnificence of a valley disguised as a city. Panoramic view, confusion of lights, colonial charms covered by the dark mantel of the night. Hidden beauty resting in the Andean heights.

Considered as the capital of the valleys of Bolivia, Cochabamba is in a fertile and productive area at 2,500 ma.s.l. The city, surrounded by fields of cultivations and valuable pre-incas vestiges, conserves its colonial semblance and the customs inherited from its Quechua and Aymara ancestors.

Before the arrival of the Spanish conquerors, the valley of Cochabamba (from the Quechua term, cocha: lagoon and pampas: plain), was inhabited by primitive cultures that, later on, fell under the domain of the Collas. Then, the sons of the Sun extended their golden empire until these rich lands that were part of the Collasuyo region.

Dear colleagues and friends, once again, it is a great honor and sincere pleasure to invite you to course “The Cerebral White Matter: Functional Anatomy and Surgical Applications (Hands-On)”. I am confident that together we will experience an unforgettable congress in the magnificent city of Cochabamba, September 21-22, 2018.

With best regards,

Richard Gonzalo Párraga
