Course description:

The international courses MIND AND BRAIN are focused on functional brain-imaging methods (MEG, EEG, TMS, fMRI, PET, OI) and their non-invasive insight into human brain concerning health and disease. This year's topic focuses on the neuroplasticity of the brain and behavior in normal development and aging as well as on a range of delayed or pathological developments, stress, and disease-related brain and behavior changes occurring throughout the human life span such as ADHD, PTSD, MCI, and AD. The neurofeedback track will cover topics on three domains of applications: adult clinical, child clinical/educational, and optimal performance. The ADHD training track will present neuropsychological and electrophysiological methods for the assessment and treatment of ADHD in children and adults from theoretical, research, and clinical perspectives.
