Antonio E. Puente, PhD was born in La Habana, Cuba and emigrated to the US in 1960. Dr. Puente received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia. He has taught at University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) since 1981 and prior to that at St. George’s University School of Medicine. His primary teaching activities include Brain and Behavior, Clinical Neuropsychology and History of Psychology. Dr. Puente is founding director of UNCW’s Centro Hispano and his research focuses on the interface between culture and neuropsychology. Puente founded and edited the journals Neuropsychology Review and Journal of Interprofessional Education &
Practice as well as a neuropsychology book series. He has published 10 books, 85 chapters and 112 scientific articles in several languages. Dr. Puente is Professor of Psychology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and also maintains a private practice in clinical neuropsychology is the founder and co-director of mental health services at the Cape Fear Clinic, a bilingual multi-disciplinary health center serving the indigent. Dr. Puente served as president of the N.C. Psychological Association, N.C. Psychological Foundation, the Hispanic Neuropsychological Association, National Academy of Neuropsychology, and Society for Clinical Neuropsychology (Division 40 of APA) as well as President of the American Psychological Association.
Dr. Cristi Salinas is a bilingual neuropsychologist who has improved the lives of over 6,000 children and adults from over 24 countries around the world. Major milestones in Dr. Cristi’s career include working with cutting-edge, neurodiagnostic technologies at Boston Children’s Hospital, and contributing to the development of best practices at Harvard Medical School, Emory Medical School, and Advent Health, particularly in the areas of epilepsy/brain tumor, sports concussion, fMRI, and BCI/ECoG language mapping. She is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UCF Medical School and Adjunct Assistant Professor in Psychology at Florida Institute of Technology. Dr. Cristi has first or co-authorship on 28 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, as well as 35 invited national and international presentations. Dr. Salinas was selected as the 2019 Recipient of the Mentoring in Cultural Neuropsychology Award by the Hispanic Neuropsychological Society (HNS) and she currently serves on their Executive Board as Treasurer. She is the Founder of Neuropsychology Concierge® where she is among the country’s first neuropsychologists to provide innovative services such as on-demand, at-home, and tele-neuropsychology (TeleNP) since 2016. She is the Founder of Niños Health®, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing innovative, culturally responsive care, research, and education for Latinx and other underserved children who are struggling with conditions that affect development. Dr. Cristi is the Founder of the Brain Tech Project.
Innovations in Neuroimaging Modalities
12:30pm - 2:00pm EST | 1.5 CE credits
- Explain the value of biomarkers and cognitive measures to diagnosis epilepsy and dementia
- Compare “gold” standard ESM to ECoG-based language mapping with deep learning approaches for pre-surgical planning

Milena Korostenskaja, Ph.D. is Founder and Director of The Institute of Neuroapproaches. She leads Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) program at AdventHealth Orlando and teaches in Associate Professor capacity at Vilnius University as well as serves as a Part-time Faculty at the University of North Florida and AdventHealth University. She received her Ph.D. in Psychology (Behavioral Sciences) from Helsinki University and completed her post-doctoral fellowship in neurophysiological research at the Department of Neurology, Cincinnati Children Hospital Medical Center, where she later received her first Faculty position as an Assistant Professor. Her recent work focuses on finding biomarkers for neurological and mental disorders by using brain imaging techniques and developing effective treatment and rehabilitation approaches to alleviate the burden associated with these disorders by using BCIs. Currently, she is the principal investigator on several projects, including the project that aims to restore motor function in patients post-stroke by using BCIs, as well as to prevent post-surgical morbidity in patients undergoing brain surgery by using adaptive neurotechnologies.
Innovations in Neurorehabilitation
2:00pm - 3:30pm EST | 1.5 CE credits
- Compare the advantages and disadvantages of using technology in the rehabilitation of individuals with brain injury
- Rate outcomes of incorporating virtual reality (VR) environments into exposure therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- List pre-assembled Open Source Applications for Brain Health
Mr. Heinz started his IT career as a research mathematician for the National Security Agency (NSA) in 1980. In 1985, Mr. Heinz designed and programed an “intelligent signal demodulator” referencing Mercer’s theorem and implementing the Karhunen-Loveve expansion in a primitive imperative programming language created by the NSA. Mr. Heinz did not realize that he was doing “machine
learning.” In 1985, Mr. Heinz also created a software library for an implementation of the Karhunen-Loveve expansion, but now, since 2018, there are numerous implementations of the Karhunen-Loeveve expansion available (for example, from mathworks.com’s matlib). In 1991, Mr. Heinz received his Master’s Degree from McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland. In 2010, Mr. Heinz saw the value in rapidly creating data planes from license-free, open-source components. As time progressed these components became more powerful and were joined by other components to augment the CI/CD of these data planes as micro services. As of 2020, Mr. Heinz is now the CEO of DFHEINZ, LLC, DUGtalks Global, and the nonprofit organization called Veterans in Artificial Intelligence.
