  • Next message: Tim Meese: "VisionScienceList: Positions in Optometry and Vision Science"

    4th Pan Pacific Workshop on Brain Topography,
    Irvine, CA
    November 11-12, 2000


    Brain imaging studies in humans with EEG, MEG, PET, or fMRI provide
    unique opportunities to observe the concurrent operation of the entire
    brain. This workshop will present current methods and applications of
    network identification, localization, and dynamical analysis in
    cognitive and clinical neuroimaging. These presentations and discussion
    will seek to communicate methods to a broad audience of clinical and
    cognitive scientists, and to identify potential future research
    directions of integrative neuroscience using human brain imaging.

    The speakers will include

    "EEG coherence and correlation with different types of hand movements"
    Mark Hallett, Motor Control Section, NINDS, Bethesda

    "Event-related coherence of the steady-state visually evoked potential
    in working memory tasks"
