sLORETA Neurofeedback Symposium

Saturday and Sunday, 2nd - 3rd December 2006
University of Zurich, Switzerland


Announcement and Call for Participation


We are pleased to announce a two-day Symposium on the standardized Low-Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography Neurofeedback technique.

Participants will be introduced to the basic principles and be taught how to apply and integrate sLORETA into their clinical work.

Faculty and Programme

Professor L. Jäncke, Institute of Neuropsychology, University of Zurich

sLORETA based on the BCI techniques as a new way of treating and rehabilitating psychiatric and neuropsychological diseases.

Roberto D. Pascual-Marqui, Key Institute, University of Zurich

There is a widely acknowledged need in neuroimaging science to depart from pure phrenology (location of function), and to focus on the connectivity of the brain. Recently, the diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) technique has been used to provide essential three-dimensional (3D) information on axonal fiber projections (tractography). However, this information is anatomical and static, not precisely dynamic. The importance of dynamic connectivity can be illustrated with the example of synchronization and binding, which can only emerge in a system where each element is connected to every other one, but for a given task to be performed in a finite amount of time, only some connections (of all possible connections) are used. Two methods will be evaluated about the estimation of causal (directional) cortical neuronal interactions. The methods are illustrated with visual event related potential data, and with spontaneous EEG data.

Marco Congedo, PhD, NovaTech EEG, Grenoble, France

Existing literature on Tomographic Neurofeedback based on LORETA/sLORETA methods will be reviewed. The problem of real-time extraction of intra-cerebral source activity in any given region oft interest is formulated in terms of reduction of noise and interference generated by non-interesting sources and artefacts. A filtering method to be applied to sLORETA Neurofeedback addressing this problem will be described.

Professor J. Kropotov, Institute of the Human Brain, St. Petersburg, Russia

QEEG and sLORETA-based Neurofeedback: an advanced course

Topics:

  • Localizing generators by means of sLORETA;
  • Designing protocols for sLORETA Neurofeedback. Normative data bases (NovaTech sLORETA database);
  • Demonstration of the sLORETA application, protocol design and its implementation on a subject followed by hands-on training.

Registration

Registration Fee: 200 EUR

Student Support: A limited number of registration fee waivers will be awarded to students who wish to attend the workshop. Proof of full-time student status required to apply.

The Symposium Organizers 

Nature Neuroscience presents a special focus in October 2006 on childhood developmental disorders. This focus presents recent research on disorders such as dyslexia, specific language impairment and autism. The aim of this focus is to understand the genetic, behavioral and neural deficits in these disorders, and the implications for the treatment of affected children and for normal development. The content for this focus is freely accessible online.
Oxford Journals has announced the launch of Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (SCAN). The journal will provide a vehicle for research in the increasingly overlapping fields of social psychology and the neurosciences.

All SCAN articles can be freely accessed during 2006 via the URL - http://www.scan.oxfordjournals.org. You can also find information for online manuscript submission, advance article access and free alerting services.

Nature Web Focus: Brain-Machine Interfaces

"Brain-machine interfaces promise to aid paralyzed patients by re-routing movement-related signals around damaged parts of the nervous system. A new study in Nature demonstrates a human with spinal injury manipulating a screen cursor and robotic devices by thought alone. Implanted electrodes in his motor cortex recorded neural activity, and translated it into movement commands. A second study, in monkeys, shows that brain-machine interfaces can operate at high speed, greatly increasing their clinical potential. This Nature Web Focus includes exclusive interviews and video footage of experiments, alongside papers that paved the way for these recent advances."

 

The Open-ViBE research project - presented at the SAN Turkey Symposium chaired by Dr. Marco Congedo - was awarded a 3-year grant by the French National Agency of Research.

Dr. Ute Strehl and Dr. Hartmut Heinrich have been awarded the 2005 Kramer-Pollnow Award for their research contribution on neurofeedback and ADHD.

Submissions

Responsibilities of Authors

Open schedule

By submitting, authors agree to be scheduled at any time during the conference. Due to the volume of submissions, requests for specific timing of presentations cannot be considered.

Firm commitment to attend

A submission constitutes a firm commitment to attend and participate if the submission is accepted. Withdrawals are strongly discouraged; if, however, a submission must be withdrawn, please notify the Programme Chair as soon as possible.

General Submission Guidelines

Authors are kindly requested to be certain that their abstracts meet the criteria and guidelines below:


  • Abstracts should not exceed 300 words (not including author information and title).
