    ERPs Made Accessible: An Introduction to Simplified Event-Related Potential Recording and Analysis

    THURSDAY, September 5, 2024

    2:00pm Eastern time

    Instructor:  Thomas Feiner

    Course Description: 

    This session is designed to introduce the vital role of Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) in enhancing clinical expertise and improving therapeutic outcomes. Unlike Quantitative EEG (QEEG), which primarily examines the brain's electrical activity at rest, ERPs provide a dynamic assessment of the brain's response to specific tasks or stimuli, offering invaluable insights into the brain's functional processes.

    Throughout this webinar, we will delve into the distinctive capabilities of ERPs that are not visible through QEEG, such as the precise timing of neural responses, which can inform more targeted interventions in neurofeedback practices. We will explore how ERPs can effectively reveal various aspects of cognitive and neurological functions—such as attention, perception, and memory—thereby providing a more comprehensive view of an individual's brain activity.

    Specifically, this session will focus on key ERP components and their clinical applications, including the Oddball task for evaluating speed of processing, the Contingent Negative Variation (CNV) for studying anticipatory behavior and decision-making processes, and the Mismatch Negativity (MMN) for assessing auditory discrimination and consciousness, particularly useful in coma patients. This aims to illustrate the breadth and depth of insights ERPs can offer into active brain function, making them indispensable in the toolkit for everyone who wants to become a more advanced neurofeedback practitioner.

    By the end of this webinar, attendees will gain a clearer understanding of the advantages of ERPs over traditional QEEG in the context of active brain assessment and will be equipped with the knowledge to apply these insights in their clinical practice.

    We look forward to exploring the dynamic world of ERPs with you and uncovering new possibilities in neurofeedback therapy. Join us to enhance your clinical expertise and ultimately improve patient outcomes through the sophisticated use of Event-Related Potentials.

    Fees: The webinar fee is $35.00 for all ISNR members. The fee for non-members is $45.00. Student fee is $15 with proof of student status.

    Continuing Education:  CE credit is NOT available for this webinar.

    Specific Learning objectives:

    Based on the content of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

    Understand the Basics of ERPs:

    • Define Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) and explain their significance in measuring brain activity.
    • Differentiate ERPs from QEEG by discussing how each method assesses brain function.

    Identify Key ERP Components:

    • Describe the characteristics and clinical relevance of specific ERP components such as the Oddball task, CNV, and MMN.
    • Explain how these components can be applied to assess various cognitive functions and states, including processing speed, anticipatory behavior, and auditory discrimination.

    Application in Clinical Settings:

    • Demonstrate how ERPs can be integrated into neurofeedback therapy to enhance diagnostic precision and therapeutic outcomes.
    • Provide examples of how ERPs are used in clinical practice, focusing on practical applications such as assessing consciousness in coma patients.

    Interpretation of ERP Data:

    • Illustrate basic methods for interpreting ERP data, highlighting what clinicians should look for in ERP waveforms.
    • Discuss common pitfalls in interpreting ERPs and how to avoid them.

    You will receive an email containing the link to join the webinar one week, one day, and the morning before the event. Please ensure that you test your access to Zoom at least two hours before the webinar begins.

    If you cannot attend the live webinar, all paid registrants will receive a recording of the webinar. 

    Refund/cancellation policy:

    If you sign up and pay for a webinar but are unable to attend the live presentation, you will be provided with access to the recorded webinar; refunds will not be issued.

    Because these presentations will be done online, it will be the responsibility of the participant to provide adequate and appropriate computer availability as well as internet connections that will support this webinar. All efforts and reasonable accommodations will be made to make the information accessible to persons with disabilities.

    While this presentation offers no risk in and of itself, it is the responsibility of the individual attendee to determine any risks involved in the implementation of the contents of this presentation.
