Re: ERP source localization

Hello all:

I know the list is getting a fair number of conference announcements, and I am reluctant to add to it, but I thought some of you attending the Cognitive Neuroscience Society conference in New York City next month might be interested in this preconference workshop. We will be discussing methods for analyzing electrophysiological or magnetic data recorded in humans to make inferences about (1) the brain locations that account for the measured signals, (2) the estimation of time-varying activity at selected brain regions, and (3) the functional connectivity between brain regions. While the focus is on addressing applications potentially relevant for neurocognitive rehabilitation, the content will be highly relevant to anyone interested in recent advances in source localization of brain electrical responses. The ERP work that Allen Osman and I will discuss, for example, concerns the analysis of steady-state evoked potentials to complex sounds (FM).

Event-related potentials (ERPs) constitute a millisecond-by-millisecond record of neural information processing that can be linked to underlying cortical sources in the human brain.  In this workshop, we provide an overview of methods used to locate these sources and to specify their functional connectivity.  We then consider how these methods can help elucidate cognitive sequelae of brain damage and review special issues arising in connection with neurologically compromised individuals. Recent studies will be presented that utilize ERPs to explore changes in neural network function that may reflect functional recovery and the effects of neuro-cognitive rehabilitation.
