SAN2014 - Call for Abstracts

You are cordially invited to submit your contribution to the Society for Applied Neuroscience (SAN) conference, both papers and poster presentations are welcome.

Each submission must include the following:

  • An abstract (250 word limitation). Abstracts will be published in the conference program materials.
  • A maximum of three educational objectives (excluding poster presentation).

    Each presenter must provide the following:
  • Biographical information including credentials and educational background
  • Disclosure and conflict of interest statement

It should be noted that for each paper submission, at least one author should be registered, in order to be eliglible to present (oral or poster) your work, and to include your work in the conference program materials.

Online submissions must be RECEIVED by December 1st, 2013.

Format Descriptions

Papers (Oral Presentations)

Papers are an interesting way to share new results with your colleagues. Note that the time is limited and that your presentations are supposed to elicit discussion afterwards. Remember, you are the expert. No one in the audience knows as much about your research investigation as you. Therefore, remember to explain your research in enough detail so the audience will understand what you did, how you did it, and what you learned. All paper presenters must register for the conference.

Poster presentations offer an opportunity for clinical and/or scientific presentations in an interactive environment. There is no compensation provided for poster presenters. The presenting author should be listed as first presenter on the author/presenter page. All poster presenters must register for the conference.

Evaluation Criteria for Abstracts

Abstracts should address the following:

  • Background to the study or project (including significance to the field)
  • Purpose of the study or project
  • Theoretical framework
  • Methods used to collect and analyze the data
  • Findings
  • Future implications (general/mental health, policy, education)

A submission is more likely to be accepted if it is original, innovative, and contributes to the scholarly practice of applied neuroscience. Quality of work, clarity and completeness of the submitted materials will be considered. The conference committee receives more proposals than space available. Careful attention to these criteria is likely to increase the chance for acceptance.

Abstract Guidelines

Below you can find the abstract's template for the SAN2014 - Meeting. All authors are pleased to strictly follow the template.

How anti-depressants create brain cell

Scientists have finally discovered how anti-depressants make new brain cells, which could help researchers develop better and more efficient drugs to combat depression.


The study by scientists from the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, show that anti-depressants regulate the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) - a key protein involved in the stress response.

This four-day workshop will cover diagnostic and treatment expertise using the newly emerged QEEG/ERP and Neurofeedback techniques. It will also give you a unique opportunity to witness two world-leading experts present (and debate) the steps involved in the interpretation of brain imaging data (s-LORETA) and the design of personalised Neurofeedback protocols. Participants are welcome to bring along their own data and results for feedback during the sessions and group discussions. At the end of each day, Jay and Juri will leave the powerpoints behind and simply sit with the group to reflect about the day’s contents and answer questions from the participants.
Target groups: The workshop is designed for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners and researchers, including psychologists, psychotherapists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, school psychologists, pediatricians, neurofeedback therapists, students, and other health care professionals with an interest in QEEG patterns of psychopathology.
The workshop is BCIA accredited and sponsored by the British Neuroscience Association BNA

SAN Special Issues in Scientific Journals.

Following the two open meetings at SAN 2011, Thessaloniki, five special issues in neuroscience journals were initiated.

Journal of Neural Engineering.


The first on BCI, based around the workshop organised by Matthias Treder was published online in August in the Journal of Neural Engineering, volume 9, number 4 with 12 manuscripts.

M.S.Treder, 2012, Special section on Gaze-independent Brain-Computer Interface. J Neural Engineering. doi: 10.1088/1741-2560/9/4/040201.

Neuroscience & Biobehavioural Reviews.


The second is in progress with Neuroscience and Biobehavioural Reviews guest co-edited by John Gruzelier, Fabio Babiloni, Dirk de Ridder, Panos Bamidis.  This encompasses theoretical and review contributions with 16 submissions.

Biological Psychology.


A third has been invited by Biological Psychology as a themed issue on Neurofeedback with guest co-editors John Gruzelier and Geert van Boxtel. 18 empirical contributions and commentaries are under review or are to be submitted.

International Journal of Psychophysiology.


A double issue on Applied Neuroscience is underway with the International Journal of Psychophysiology structured around Psychobiology with John Gruzelier, Tomas Ros, Miriam Reiner as guest co-editors and 17 submissions, and structured around Development and Pathology with John Gruzelier, Lynda Pagani and Panos Bamidis as guest co-editors and with  15 submissions.

In the four Elsevier special issues in progress articles are published online on the journal websites following acceptance and ahead of publication of the special issues.
