International Society For Neurofeedback And Research (ISNR) 2011 Annual Conference

ISNR 2011 Annual Conference LogoThe International Society For Neurofeedback And Research (ISNR) will hold its 2011 annual conference in Phoenix, Arizona. ISNR conferences are the premier international meetings for healthcare professionals, students, teachers, and researchers who are interested in psychophysiology, particularly peripheral biofeedback, neurofeedback, and quantitative EEG (QEEG).

Noted guest speakers from around the globe routinely present their top-notch research and clinical findings, and this year is no exception. Current confirmed invited speakers include Paul Hamilton, PhD, William Bosl, PhD, LTC Daniel T. Johnston, MD, MPH, Adam Clarke, PhD, Efthymios Angelakis, Roberto D. Pascual-Marqui, PhD, Scott Makeig, PhD, and Paola Arlotta, PhD. Additional speakers are often added as the event draws closer.

    The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) is pleased to announce that William Bosl, PhD has accepted our invitation to be one of the Invited Speakers at the 19th Annual ISNR Conference.

    Dr. Bosl is a research scientist at Children’s Hospital Boston and Instructor in Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. His primary research interests are in cognitive development and pediatric neuropsychological assessment. The focus of his laboratory is to develop clinically useful technology for analyzing brain function and using advanced informatics methods for extracting psychiatric biomarkers from measurements of brain activity. Early autism risk assessment and epilepsy are two primary areas of interest. Dr. Bosl is also involved with developing clinical decision support and mental health assessment technology for use in developing regions of the world. In this context, he is involved with creating mobile phone based applications for assessing the effects of trauma and infectious diseases on brain development.

    Dr. Bosl was originally trained as a computational physicist and has extensive background in scientific computing and data analysis. He designed algorithms for environmental modeling and integration of remote sensing data at the University of California and Stanford University. During this time he invented and patented a method for computing properties of porous materials from CT scans. Dr. Bosl completed his PhD at Stanford University. Since coming to Harvard and Children’s Hospital, he has completed additional advanced graduate training in clinical neuroscience, child neuropsychology and neurotechnology at Harvard, MIT and Boston University. He is an adjunct lecturer in human neuropsychology at the Boston University School of Medicine. Dr. Bosl and colleagues recently published “EEG complexity as a biomarker for autism spectrum disorder risk” which can be found here: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1741-7015/9/18

      Hello Christoper,

      I am a Neurofeedback Practitioner and I have a client with HSP (Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia) and would like more information on using Neurofeedback to help this condition. I am unable to get the full article that this site starts. Can you please send the article to the above email address. It was the only thing I could find when I searched the condition and Neurofeedback. Please I really would love to get started with this client. Thanks!! Regards, Lynette

    The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) is pleased to announce that Paola Arlotta, PhD, has accepted our invitation to be one of the Keynote Speakers at the 19th Annual ISNR Conference.

    Dr. Arlotta is currently Assistant Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard Medical School and Assistant Professor of Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital. She is interested in defining the molecular pathways that during development of the mammalian cerebral cortex direct the differentiation of neural progenitors/stem cells into distinct types of projection neurons, and the establishment of their interactions with inhibitory interneurons within the cortical microcircuitry.

    Dr. Arlotta has a special focus on the early signals that induce differentiation of corticospinal neurons, a clinically relevant neuronal population that in humans selectively degenerates in ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP), Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS), and that is permanently injured in spinal cord injury (SCI).

    Following the hypothesis that some of the same signals that control the birth and early development of corticospinal neurons during embryogenesis may be used to regenerate this neuron type in the mature brain, she is also investigating the possibility that pluripotent stem cells (i.e. iPS cells) may be directed to differentiate into corticospinal neurons for therapeutic application in neurodegenerative diseases of the corticospinal tract.

He currently writes for Dr Oz and Sharecare, where he serves on the Editorial Board. He is a noted expert in nutritional supplementation for chronic disease management and performance enhancement and has pioneered the concept of “Nutritional Armor” for the US military especially in deployed settings for resilience, health, and performance.

    Dr. Johnston is conducting a double blind placebo controlled trial in Iraq during a year-long tour with the US Army as a Brigade Surgeon from 2010-2011 looking at the role of Omega-3 EPA/DHA in mood and cognition in a deployed, stress-filled environment. He also served in the White House and as the Medical Director for the Human Performance Laboratory at USUHS and currently serves on the Department of Defense Nutritional Supplement Committee. He was selected in 2011 to be the Medical Director for the US Army Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program at the US Pentagon. He worked as a US Pentagon physician focusing on prevention and wellness for some of the military’s highest levels of leadership. He also worked at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute where he was the lead instructor for the medical effects of radiation. He is currently working with NASA researchers on a examining the benefits of specific nutritional supplement formulations for astronaut health and wellness through reduction in oxidative stress.

    While in Iraq during his tour supporting Operation New Dawn, Dr. Johnston pioneered the first ever Army Resiliency Center in combat and oversaw biofeedback and personalized nutritional and wellness programs. During some of his free time, he consults with high performance athletes on nutraceuticals for performance enhancement.
