7th International Summer School in Biomedical Engineering

Post by ahunold »

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce the

7th International Summer School in Biomedical Engineering on "New Instrumentation for brain measurements and stimulation" August, 17-29, 2015 in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany.

This event stands in the tradition of a series of successful summer schools on hot themes in biomedical engineering, dedicated to intense learning in the fruitful atmosphere of tight interaction between students and world-leading specialists.

This year’s summer school is devoted to new hardware technologies for measuring and stimulating the brain, such as dry electroencephalography (EEG) electrodes, optically pumped magnetic field sensors, neuronal current imaging based on low-field magnetic resonance and multichannel transcranial current stimulation.

In particular, the 7th International Summer School on Biomedical Engineering will focus on ways how these new technical advances may help to overcome current limitations in human neurosciences and medicine. It will cover both theoretical foundations and practical applications. We aim at a thorough understanding of the underlying mechanisms. Thus, we will develop a critical view on current applications and possible future developments.

The second important aim of the summer school consists in providing contact with both leading experts in the field and other students with similar interests, thereby facilitating the exchange of ideas on latest developments in the field.

Target Group:
- PhD students
- Advanced Master students
- Researchers entering the field of brain measurement and stimulation techniques
