Announcement for BrainDays: Assessing, Localising and Modulating Brain
Function October 1 and 2, 2004

The pink lecture hall of the University Medical Centre Utrecht,
The symposium is divided into two different days, of which the second is
most interesting for researchers:

* Saturday October 2,
Access to the living brain – neurophysiological advances in recording
and modification of human brain function.

This day will be dedicated to new ways of reading and influencing brain
function, that open up vistas of treating brain damaged patients and is
intended for all those interested in clinical and cognitive
neuroscience, brain neurophysiology, psychiatry, neurology and
rehabilitation medicine. Leading investigators will show the latest
advances in:

- reading functional neocortical networks from EEG and
- influencing networks through electro-stimulation and transcranial
magnetic stimulation
- using input from EEG and electro-corticography to develop treatment
- implementing these input-modulated strategies in devices to the
benefit of brain damaged patients
- direct interfacing of electronic devices to neurons

Speakers include:
Nathan Crone, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA
Bart Nuttin, University of Leuven, Belgium
Tomas Paus, McGill University, Montreal, Canada
Eberhart Zrenner, University of Tuebingen, Germany
Gerhard Friehs, Brown University, Providence, RI, USA
Niels Birbaumer, University of Tübingen, Germany
Gerwin Schalk, Wadsworth Center, Albany, NY, USA

* Friday October 1,
Access to the living brain – Function localisation in brain surgery
The first day will provide an overview of the current techniques and
possibilities of pre- and intra-operative localisation of function and
is intended for neurosurgeons, clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists
(especially neuro-oncologists), radiologists, and residents in these
fields. We also welcome clinical psychologists, cognitive
neuroscientists and (PhD) students with an interest in clinical
applications of functional imaging.

Speakers include:
Frans Leijten, Utrecht, NL
Alexander van Huffelen, Utrecht, NL
Hugues Duffau, Paris, F
Pauly Ossenblok, Heeze, NL
Oliver Ganslandt, Erlangen, D
Nick Ramsey, Utrecht, NL
Erik Achten, Gent, B
