Dear colleague,
You are hereby invited to our third interdisciplinary
conference

Neurophysiology of Developmental Disorders in Children

in Freiburg, Germany on the 12th and 13th 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: Euro 80

Conference: Euro 140
(for workshop participants: Euro  60)

The registration fee for the conference will be waived for
participants from the universities of  Strasbourg, Basel,
and Freiburg.

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
