WED 18 NOVEMBER 2020 | 16.00-19.00 EET

 

Dr Athena Demertzi

Consciousness - Behavior and neural correlates

Dr Athena Demertzi

Tenured Researcher at GIGA Research Institute University of Liege (BE)

Seminar Overview:
The neural correlates of consciousness constitute the minimal set of neuronal events and mechanisms sufficient for a specific conscious percept. Empirical approaches to discover neural correlates of subjective phenomena will be discussed in this lecturer; that is, neural changes which necessarily and regularly correlate with a specific experience.

Dr Eddy Davellar

New developments in neurofeedback research

Dr Eddy Davelaar

Reader in Psychology at Birkbeck University of London (UK)

Seminar Overview:
Neurofeedback (NFB), also called neurotherapy or neurobiofeedback, is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG)—in an attempt to teach self-regulation of brain function. In this lecture we are going to discover the state of the art in neurofeedback research.

Dr Rosalia Dacosta Aguayo

Cognitive Rehabilitation and Neuroimaging after Stroke

Dr Rosalia Dacosta Aguayo

Researcher at University of Barcelona (ES)

Seminar Overview:
A stroke is a medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain causes cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. Both cause parts of the brain to stop functioning properly. In this lecture we are going to explore potential neuromarkers that indicate good cognitive rehabilitation after stroke based on neuroimaging findings.

Prof. Shu Chen Li

Human multisensory perception and neurocognitive development across the lifespan

Prof. Shu Chen Li

Professor in Neuroscience at Technical University of Dresden (DE)

Seminar Overview:
Daily life confronts us with information across multiple senses in parallel and we must somehow unite these sensations into a coherent interpretation of the world. This lecture will explain how the human brain comes to develop this complex ability, and how brain can come to experience multisensory integration in remarkable ways.

 

 

WED 16 DECEMBER 2020 | 16.00-18.00 EET

 

Dr Valia Rodriguez

Elders’ Brain

Dr Valia Rodriguez

Lecturer in Neuropyshiology, Aston University (UK)

Seminar Overview:
Ageing causes changes to the brain size, vasculature, and cognition. The brain shrinks with increasing age and there are changes at all levels from molecules to morphology. Incidence of stroke, white matter lesions, and dementia also rise with age, as does level of memory impairment and there are changes in levels of neurotransmitters and hormones. In this lecture we are going to discuss these changes and how they affect elders’ performance.

 

 

18.00-19.00 EET

 

Dr Alexandra Touroutoglou

Consciousness - Behavior and neural correlates

Dr Alexandra Touroutoglou

Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School (USA)

Seminar Overview:
Decline in cognitive skills, especially in memory, is often viewed as part of “normal” aging. Yet some individuals “age better” than others. In this lecture we will examine the hypothesis if superagers (older individuals with youthful memory performance) would exhibit preserved neuroanatomy in key brain networks subserving memory.
