Conference on "Neurophysiology of Developmental Disorders in Children"
You are hereby invited to our third interdisciplinary
Neurophysiology of Developmental Disorders in Children
in Freiburg, Germany on the 11th and 12th of December 2003.
The conference will consist of Invited Lectures and Free
Communication (oral presentations or posters).
Presentations and discussions will focus on the following
∑ Specific Language Impairment (SLI)
∑ Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Preceding the conference there will be an introductory
workshop "Developmental Language Disorders" (December 11th,
2003, 14.00 to 18.30 h) that will provide relevant
background information on Dyslexia, SLI and ADHD and
familiarize participants with neurophysiological test
methods used in present-day research.
Introductory Workshop: ? 80
Conference: ? 140 (for workshop participants: ? 60)
Detailed overview over the individual topics:
∑ Developmental disorders in children as a continuum:
Co-morbidities and Correlations
∑ Central auditory processing deficits in dyslexia
∑ Neurophysiological correlates of dyslexia
Specific Language Impairment
∑ How specific is the term "Specific Language Impairment"?
∑ Central auditory processing deficits in SLI
∑ Behavioral data versus neurophysiological findings
∑ Basic central auditory deficits versus deficits on higher
∑ Aspects of processing capacity:
Auditory attention span, complexity of acoustic-auditory
sequences, complexity of parallel bottom-up and top-down
∑ Processing Negativity: Role and function of attention
mechanisms in basic central auditory processing
Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder
∑ Profiling ADHD: What do attention deficits and
hyperkinetic symptoms have in common?
∑ "Attention" at the intersection of different development
∑ Neurophysiology of attention deficits
