Symposium in Novel therapies for patients with schizophrenia: neurofeedback and neurostimulation

Chair: Dr. Stefanie Enriquez-Geppert
Co-Chair: Prof. André Aleman

Psychotic disorders are under the top five most expensive brain disorders in Europe and are regarded as a complex disorder of brain connectivity. This has clear implications regarding the development of modern neuroscientific approaches directly focusing on the neural dysfunctions. The present symposium covers different approaches, ranging from electrical stimulation, fMRI- and EEG neurofeedback to rTMS, and covering all symptom domains. We seek to address the potential and applicability of these novel approaches as possible therapeutic tools for patients with schizophrenia.
