Event-related Potentials as Biomarkers for Clinical Practice, Peak Performance Training and Research
with Estate M. Sokhadze, Ph.D., BCN, SC USA
Event-related potentials (ERP) are changes in the waveform of the EEG that are triggered by sensory, motor or cognitive processes. Thus ERPs open a window into basic functions of the human mind. The processing of stimuli takes only a few milliseconds, yet those measurements provide crucial diagnostic criteria that are often even more informative than a quantitative EEG.
ERP technique represents an important tool for brain research in psychiatry, as many psychiatric diseases correlate with certain altered patterns of ERPs. Such ERP alterations can serve as valid biomarkers for functional diagnostic or for better understanding of the cognitive functions which are disturbed in psychiatric and neurologic disorders.
IFEN is proud to offer you the first workshop on ERP in Europe with the great Estate (Tato) M. Sokhadze, Ph.D., BCN Research Professor of Biomedical Sciences, University of South Carolina School of Medicine (Greenville Campus, Greenville, SC, USA).
The workshop focuses on clinical applications and research of ERPs and their specifics. We have the necessary equipment for all participants on site. You do not need to bring your own equipment! This workshop is neutral of platform.
We offer the unique opportunity to broadcast the seminar via stream. Thus you can easily participate from home, or from any place without travel and hotel costs. The only thing you need is an internet access. Please contact us if you want to participate via streaming!
Who can participate: Anyone interested in improving and expanding their neurofeedback-skills (physicians, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, occupational therapists, researchers, coaches etc)
Workshop Language: The course will be held in English.

Never before has it been so easy to translate the latest findings of neuroscience into one's own practice!
- Methods of EEG recording and montage
- Artifact correction using different tools (e.g., ICA, EOG, EMG artifacts)
