APPLIED NEUROSCIENCE CONFERENCE

Written by

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.

sLORETA Neurofeedback Symposium

Written by
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.

Nature's Special Focus on Developmental Disorders

Written by
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.

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.
