It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 2008 Annual Meeting of the Society of Applied Neuroscience that is going to be held together with the EC COST action B27. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to hold this Meeting in the beautiful city of Seville in Spain.
According to the legend, Sevilla was founded by Hercules and its origins are linked with the Tartessian civilisation. It lies on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, is the largest town in Southern Spain and the city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro. The Hotel Hesperia Sevilla, one of Seville's classics, located close to one of the city’s main shopping areas and 5 minutes from the beautiful historic centre of the Andalusian capital will hold this meeting.
The scientific program promises to be an exciting one. Some highlights include plenary addresses by leading scientists such as Dr. Andrew Papanicolau on magnetoencephalography in dyslexia and amnesia, Dr. George Northoff on fMRI and psychiatric conditions, as weel as Dr. Roy John on QEEG applications. The meeting will cover a wide amount of applied neuroscience fields. These include neurofeedback, peripheral biofeedback, brain-computer interfaces, neuro-rehabilitation, and neuronal reorganisation through behavioural methods, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and real-time self-regulation procedures using fMRI and MEG.
There will also be a lively social program which will give us the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful city and its people. In addition to the intellectual stimulation this meeting will provide, one of our main purposes is to give the opportunity for our international colleagues to establish new fruitful collaborations in areas of mutual academic and clinical interests.
