qEEG Workshop

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

We have two consecutive 2-day workshops (i.e. 4 days), run from the 23rd to the 26th of April 2018.

 The two workshops can be taken separately or together.

I. Application of Functional Neuromarkers in Clinical Practice.

II. Theoretical Aspects of EEG/ERP and neurotechnology.

WHERE: The Open University in Camden Town, London WHERE: Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, London
WHEN: Mon 23rd – Tue 24th April WHEN: Wed 25th – Thu 26th April
COST: £300; or 150 a day COST: £300; or 150 a day

 

Discount for members of the:
British Neuroscience Association (BNA), British Association for Cognitive Neuroscience (BACN), Society of Applied Neuroscience (SAN) and The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR).£500 for the 4 days.
Discount for Student: £400 for the 4 days.

I. Application of Functional Neuromarkers in Clinical Practice.

Two day workshop on Monday the 23rd and Tuesday the 24th April 2018.

The Open University in Camden, London.

We will meet around 9:00 to 9:30 on Monday morning at the Open Uni in Camden, although often we don’t start till 10 am on the first day.

If possible it would be a good idea to bring a Windows laptop,

I will be giving out DVDs or memory sticks, with the power points, software and example data.

if you get lost I have any problems just call me on my mobile number is 07966 484 289
