The Society proposes to establish a journal entitled the "Journal of Applied Neuroscience" (JAN).
This will serve the burgeoning field of applied neuroscience by providing necessary focus and at the same time avoiding boundaries in journal titles that impede integration of approaches set up by restrictive labels such as 'biofeedback', 'brain mapping', etc.
Leading scientists have expressed interest in serving on the Editorial Board.
Initial discussions are underway about setting up the publication of the JAN.
Special scientific journal issues are in preparation following SAN2011
April 2009 heralded the joint SAN/COST B27 training school on Neurofeedback and ADHD together with MIND AND BRAIN VI: Neuroplasticity of Brain and Behaviour. And what better venue for such a jewel of an event than Dubrovnik, known as ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’. This event took place just short of 30 years after the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites (in 1979).

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.
sLORETA based on the BCI techniques as a new way of treating and rehabilitating psychiatric and neuropsychological diseases.
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.
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.
QEEG and sLORETA-based Neurofeedback: an advanced course
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.
For more information, please contact Marietta Chatzigeorgiou, Tel. +41 78 645 28 54 or +41 44 311 63 43.
Further information concerning accommodation and details on the symposium will follow.
We look forward to meeting you in Zurich!

"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.
