APPLIED NEUROSCIENCE CONFERENCE

APPLIED NEUROSCIENCE CONFERENCE : May 17(eve), 18, 19, 20.

SAN members Martijn Arns and Rien Breteler together with an organizing committee and the Applied Neuroscience Foundation, a non-profit organisation based in Nijmegen, are hosting a conference on Applied Neuroscience in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, to coincide with the city's 2000th anniversary and its designation this year as "The City of Health". SAN together with the Dutch Association of Psychologists are the main sponsors of this meeting.

SAN will organize workshops and training courses following the meeting: May 21, 22, 23. Details to follow.

The summary of project:

EEG-defined subtypes of ADHD in adults

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common and clinically heterogeneous disorder that is associated with considerable social costs. It is estimated that up to more than one half of ADHD children continue to manifest symptoms in adulthood. Over the past decades, electrophysiological research has produced a great amount of qEEG and ERP information about children and adolescents with ADHD. In recent years, several studies have identified subgroups of ADHD children with distinct EEG profiles, suggesting that children with a diagnosis of ADHD may constitute a heterogeneous group with different underlying electrophysiological abnormalities. The planned study is aimed to investigate the presence of EEG and ERP clusters within a sample of adults with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. The identification of distinct EEG-defined subgroups of adults with ADHD would have considerable implications for the use of EEG in the assessment and diagnosis of ADHD. The EEG will be recorded in a resting coniition, as well as while performing continuous performance tasks. Clinical subjects will be grouped by means of cluster analysis.

The study is accepted by MC of cost B27 and granted by Swiss state for three years.

Management: Brain- and trauma-foundation Grison, Switzerland

Workgroup: Dr. Andreas Müller, Gian Candrian, Dr. Eric Thomann, Dr. Bettina Bardill

Cooperation Partners: University of Trondheim (NO), Prof. Knut Hestad,University of Skopje (Macedonia), Prof. Nada Pop Jordanova. Other partners are welcome.

 

A 4-year award from the Economic  & Social Research Council (ESRC) to support PhD studies of Helen Brinson on neurofeedback and stroke, supervised by Karina Linnell and John Gruzelier.

 

3-year National Endowment for Science, Technology &  Arts (NESTA) award is underway in collaboration with Trinity College of Music to apply neurofeedback to novice musicians of all ages.

3-year EU FP6 Presenccia project has begun to apply neurofeedback, self-hypnosis and virtual reality to Creative Presence States. Collaborating institutions include Laban Contemporary Dance.

 

24th to 26th of April 2008 in London

 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The success of last year's QEEG course in London calls for an encore. Learning Recovery in London is pleased to announce their 4th annual spring workshop with Juri Kropotov, Director of Lab., Institute of the Human Brain, St. Petersburg, and Professor, Institute of Psychology, Norwegian University for Science and Technology, Trondheim.

 

Prof. Kropotov will present developments in  work from a research and a clinical perspective. The focus will remain upon application of EEG spectral analysis, event-related potentials and event-related de/synchronization for assessment of brain function and development of individually etermined protocols for neurotherapy.

 

 

Highlights of the program include:

. Visual Inspection of EEG

 

. Spectral Analysis of EEG

 

. Cognitive Event Related Potentials

 

. Cognitive Event Related De/synchronization

 

. Normative Data Bases

 

. Neurofeedback as a Learning Procedure

 

. Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

 

. Assessments and Protocols for ADHD

 

. Neurotherapy with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

 

 

Course Cost: 24th to 26th is €450 or £300 (or €150 /£100 a day)

 

 

Optional extra or stand alone day on the 27th run by Tony Steffert (€67/£50 for the day)

Introductory to capping up with Mitsar/WinEEG .

. Review of the 10/20 system, . Applying an ECI electrode cap,

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The success of last year's qEEG course in London calls for an encore.  Learning Recovery  in London is pleased to announce their second annual spring workshop with Juri Kropotov, Director of Lab., Institute of the Human Brain, St. Petersburg, and Professor, Institute of Psychology, Norwegian University for Science and Technology, Trondheim, and Dr. Andreas Müller, Private Practise, Chur, Switzerland.

Prof. Kropotov and Dr. Müller will present developments in their collaborative work from a research and a clinical perspective. The focus will remain upon application of EEG spectral analysis, event-related potentials and event-related de/synchronization for assessment of brain function and development of individually determined protocols for neurotherapy.
  

Highlights of the program include:
· Visual Inspection of EEG
· Spectral Analysis of EEG
· Cognitive Event Related Potentials
· Cognitive Event Related De/synchronization
· Normative Data Bases
· Neurofeedback as a Learning Procedure
· Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
· Assessments and Protocols for ADHD
· Neurotherapy with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
· Application of Neurotherapy for Peak Performance for Athletes

New to the program this year will be the application of Peak Performance for Athletes. Prof. Kropotov, former gymnast and Master in Sports of the USSR is eminently qualified to address the potential available to athletes when they use neurotherapy. The method of Peak Performance requires not only learning to concentrate, but perhaps more importantly, to relax. 
Individual traits derived on the basis of the qEEG are used to tailor protocols for optimal training outcomes.


Dates: April 16, 2007    Introduction to recording EEG in WinEEG/Mitsar - optional
Dates: April 17 - 20,     Advanced Course

Venue: University of Westminster, Harrow, North London
