    Posted on behalf of ISNR:

    This year’s ISNR conference will continue to hold very exciting changes and an atmosphere that everyone will find very rewarding and professionally stimulating. Our conference schedule has been transformed to increase the opportunity for in depth presentations and discussions. There will more time allotted between talks to allow a more relaxed pace getting to the talks and for maximum mental absorption to take place.

    This meeting is going to be a great opportunity to advance your current understanding and expand your boundaries in neurofeedback and other neuromodulation techniques. With a rapidly growing membership we expect attendance to increase substantially. With an already existing program of the top speakers in the field and the beautiful backdrop of a resort setting just outside Denver this is yet another ISNR that shouldn’t be missed. The meeting is being held at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Denver, Colorado. We are inviting presentations from clinical practitioners, academicians, researchers, trainers, coaches, physicians, etc. who wish to make presentations oriented to the field of neurofeedback and complementary neuromodulation techniques.

    The ISNR conference committee will be accepting submissions for oral paper presentations, student scholarship oral paper presentations, poster presentations, workshops, preconference workshops, panel presentations and post-conference vendor seminars.

    In order to provide the attendee with the optimal opportunity for education and connecting there will be a limited number of oral presentations. To promote leisurely opportunities for the attendee to continue to learn about current research and clinical work the poster sessions we hope to continue to expand. There will be two different poster session opportunities for the presenters to disseminate their work in a relaxed yet formal manner. We raised the standards for our poster presentation sessions and hope to make this a unique opportunity for the attendee to interact with the presenter at a collegial level. Additional guidelines can be found online HERE.

    Again this year the Program Committee is pleased to request abstracts for research presentations by undergraduate and graduate students. In keeping with ISNR’s goal to support and endorse excellence in the field of neurofeedback, the purpose of this call is to promote research related to treatment outcome data, identification of QEEG patterns in clinical research groups, or any relevant area of neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback). This project can be a dissertation or thesis project and must consist of original work completed by an undergraduate or graduate student. Guidelines can be found online HERE.

    Along with this invitation from the 2010 ISNR Conference Committee, you will receive a “link” for internet submittal of abstracts, biographical information, and professional affiliation information related to your presentation, all of which is required for the continuing education certification compliance.

    All conference material will go through this web site and the peer review process. Your idea for a presentation can only enter this process after all the submitted internet information is accepted as complete by the ISNR staff. The review process is competitive and will begin as submissions are received, thus the submission process may be closed early. Last minute submittals are strongly discouraged. The deadline for all submittals is April 16, 2010.

    The program committee has complete discretion to accept or deny submissions and determines the form of presentation and placement within the agenda. Please be aware that scheduled times may change to accommodate the conference schedule. If you have specific time requests they MUST accompany your submission.

    Continuing with ISNR policy established in 2005, we will not accept presentations, panels or workshops which have been presented in the previous year during the conference (e.g., if a presentation, panel or workshop was presented at our 2009 conference, we will NOT accept the same work for the 2010 conference).

    Digital presentations are due September 1st for loading onto our computers. ISNR will have your talk pre-loaded on the presentation computer for the venue, saving down time due to audio-visual switch-over difficulties. All communications about presentations will be through email unless authors and presenters specifically ask to be contacted by other methods.

    Thanks for your interest in presenting at the 2010 ISNR meeting in Denver. We thank you because it is by presenting your material (whether a paper, seminar, workshop, panel, or poster) at our meeting that you are contributing to the progress of our field. We look forward to seeing you there!

    The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) is pleased to announce that Donald Cooper, Ph.D., with the University of Colorado at Boulder, has accepted our invitation as an Invited Speaker for the 18th Annual ISNR Conference this fall.

    Dr. Cooper received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the Chicago Medical School in 2000. Dr. Cooper is the recipient of an NIH career award to investigate gene expression in cocaine addiction. His laboratory is funded by the NIH to study Ecstasy and cocaine in the brain memory and reward system.

    The long-term goals of Dr. Cooper’s laboratory are to understand information processing in the brain motivation/reward memory circuitry and characterize the adaptations and impaired neural memory mechanisms associated with depression, addiction and schizophrenia.

    Dr. Cooper’s neurophysiology laboratory combines behavioral, molecular genetic and detailed electrophysiological analysis to understand how psychostimulant drugs alter neuronal impulse activity leading to short and long-term changes in communication within mesolimbic dopamine system. Their approach to this problem utilizes state-of-the-art technology (e.g. DNA microarrays, viral gene transduction, infrared and fluorescence visualized patch-clamp physiology and intravenous drug self-administration) and complementary levels of analysis (e.g. drug self-administration, in vivo and in vitro physiology, molecular techniques and computer simulation) in order to gain insight into how this system functions under normal and pathological conditions.

    Confirmed Keynote Speaker include Norman Doidge, MD (author of NY Times bestseller, “The Brain that Changes Itself”), Alvaro Pascual-Leone(neuroplasticity), and Jonathan Marks, MA, BCL (bio/neuroethics).

    Confirmed Invited Speakers include Hartmut Heinrich, PhD (ADHD, Neurofeedback), Ute Strehl, PhD (slow cortical potentials, migraine, ADHD), Jason Soss, MD (epilepsy, neurology, mapping techniques).

    The conference will be held at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Denver, Colorado from September 29 – October 3, 2010. For more information please contact Ann Marie.

He is Director of the bioethics program at the main campus, University Park, and has a joint appointment in the College of Medicine at Hershey. He is also a barrister and founding member of Matrix Chambers, London. Jonathan was counsel for Human Rights Watch in the Pinochet case, and represented Dr. Nancy Olivieri in the European Court of Justice-a landmark case on pharmaceutical regulation. The Olivieri case vividly demonstrated the potential hazards to academic independence presented by industry-sponsored medical research and triggered Jonathan’s interest in bioethics and, in particular, his interest in situational and systemic threats to ethical conduct.

    Jonathan received his M.A., B.C.L. (equivalent to J.D., LL.M.) from Oxford University and, from 2004-06, he was a Greenwall Fellow in Bioethics and Health Policy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Georgetown University Law Center. Jonathan has published widely on the legal and ethical implications of the use of health professionals, behavioral science and neuroscience in interrogation. His work on this topic has appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, American Journal of Law and Medicine, New York Times, and the Hastings Center Report (among others). During the fellowship, he will work on a book project addressing the relationship between professional ethics and human rights in the wake of terror. Jonathan Marks has been named the Edmond J. Safra Faculty Fellow in Ethics.

    Confirmed Keynote Speaker include Norman Doidge, MD (author of NY Times bestseller, “The Brain that Changes Itself”) and Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD (rTMS).

    Confirmed Invited Speakers include Hartmut Heinrich, PhD (ADHD, Neurofeedback), Ute Strehl, PhD (slow cortical potentials, migraine, ADHD), Jason Soss, MD (epilepsy, neurology, mapping techniques), Donald Cooper, PhD (addictions), and Michael Schmidt, PhD (brain building nutrition).

    The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) is pleased to announce that Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD, has accepted our invitation as an Keynote Speaker for the 18th Annual ISNR Conference this fall.

    Dr. Pascual-Leone is the Director of the Center for Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

    Dr. Pascual-Leone is Board Certified in Neurology and Neurophysiology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. His focus is to understand neural plasticity at system’s level. He seeks to identify rules that are invariant across neural systems and domains. He believe that plasticity is the normally ongoing state of the nervous system and that a coherent account of any neurocognitive theory and neural system has to contemplate plasticity as an integral property of the nervous system and the obligatory consequence of each sensory input, motor act, association, reward signal, action plan, or awareness. In this framework, notions such as psychological processes as distinct from organic-based functions or dysfunctions, or of “good” and “bad” plasticity, cease to be informative. Plasticity is the reason for development and learning, the cause of disease, and a mechanism of functional recovery. The challenge is to learn enough about the mechanisms of plasticity in order to manipulate them, suppressing some changes and enhancing others, to gain a clinical benefit and behavioral advantage for a given individual.

    In the laboratory Dr. Pascual-Leone combines various brain imaging and neurophysiologic methodologies to establish a causal relationship and a precise chronometry between regional brain activation and behavior. PET or fMRI identify information about brain areas associated with behavior. TMS can transiently deactivate a region of the brain, thus creating a “virtual patient” and explore causal relations. EEG, MEG and ERPs can provide further chronometric information. Repetitive TMS and tDCS allow the non-invasive modulation of activity in a specified cortical target area and its functionally connected cortico-subcortical neural network. MRI and EEG can guide such applications of neuromodulation. Such non-invasive approaches can lead to clinically relevant therapeutic effects in neuropsychiatry and neurorehabilitation, and serve as proof-of-principle prior to more invasive neuromodulatory interventions.
