Theoretical Aspects of EEG/ERP and neurotechnology

External Event - 25th to 26th Apr 2018

Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) & Event-related potentials (ERP) workshop for Clinicians and Researchers 2018 with Prof. Yury Kropotov ,Institute of the Human Brain of Russian Academy of Sciences are having two consecutive 2-day workshops.

Two day workshop on Wednesday the 25th and Thursday the 26th of April, 2018.

The workshop takes place at at the Institute of Psychiatry at Kings in Denmark Hill, London.  Details of the venue can be found here

Day 1: Wednesday the 25th of April, 2018

Morning:  EEG signals as indexes of cortical self-regulation:

  1. Origins of scalp recorded EEG.
  2. Direct and inverse solutions.
  3. Montages: referential, common average, and current source density.
  4. Blind source separation methods: independent components analysis, joint diagonalization of covariance matrixes.
  5. Inhibition-excitation equilibrium within the cortex. Spike/slow wave complexes.
  6. Reflection of metabolic processes in infra-slow cortical potentials.
  7. Alpha, beta and theta rhythms: neuronal mechanisms.

Afternoon: EEG-based neuromarkers: overview.

  1. Spike/slow wave complexes as indicators of focuses in the cortex.  Rolandic spikes in ADHD.  Automatic spike detection.
  2. Theta beta ratio as index of brain maturation.  Application in ADHD.
  3. Excessive frontal midline theta subtype and emotional instability.
  4. Excessive alpha subtype and hypo-arousal.
  5. Low voltage fast EEG subtype as an index of cortical hyper-activation.
  6. Frontal beta synchronization in response to relevant stimuli.  Implications for diagnosis and neurofeeedback training in ADHD.
  7. Vertex high frequency beta as neuromarker of anxiety.

Day 2: Thursday the 26th of April, 2018

Morning: Event-related potentials (ERPs) as indexes of information flow in the brain.

  1. Methods of ERP assessment: averaging, blind source separation.
  2. ERPs for assessment of sensory and attention systems in healthy and diseased brains.
  3. ERPs for assessment of executive system in healthy brains and its impairments in ADHD, schizophrenia and OCD.
  4. Affective system: signs of anxiety.
  5. Memory systems: signs of memory loss.

Afternoon: ERP-based neuromarkers: overview.

  1. Montages in ERP analysis.   Comparison of referential, common average and current source density montages.
  2. Methods of ERP assessment: averaging, blind source separation.
  3. Sensory related components in visual and auditory modality: P1, N1, N170 visual, N250 visual, and loudness dependence of auditory P1/N1.
  4. Visual P1/N1 as index of anxiety.
  5. Components of proactive cognitive control: orienting CNV, terminal CNV, sensory preceding negativity.
  1. Components of reactive cognitive control: N2 NOGO, early and late P3 NOGO components.
  2. Components of cognitive control in ADHD, schizophrenia and OCD.
  3. Effect of Ritalin on the early P3 NOGO component.

The workshop costs £300; or 150 a day. Discount for members of the British Neuroscience Association (BNA), £500 for the 4 days.

Discount for Students: £400 for the 4 days.
