Conference on "Neurophysiology of Developmental Disorders in Children"



Dear colleague,


You are hereby invited to our third interdisciplinary
conference

        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
topics:

∑       Dyslexia
∑       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.

Registration fees:
Introductory Workshop:  ? 80
Conference:  ? 140 (for workshop participants:  ? 60)


Detailed overview over the individual topics:

Dyslexia

∑       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
processing levels
∑       Aspects of  processing capacity:
Auditory attention span, complexity of acoustic-auditory
sequences, complexity of parallel bottom-up and top-down
processing
∑       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
disorders
∑       Neurophysiology of  attention deficits
