Thursday, October 18th 2012 

On Thursday October 18th there will be in parrallel a special symposium on EEG Based Personalized medicine in psychiatry as well as a Training Course. Both programmes can be found below as well as the preliminary program for the IPEG conference. 

 

 

IPEG Training Course: Thursday October 18th

 

The IPEG Conference 2012 includes the traditional one-day Training Course that will be held on Thursday October 18th. A panel of experts will deliver a series of lectures covering a broad spectrum of aspects related to pharmaco-EEG and its applications. The Training Course is usually attended by students but is also suited for researchers who wish to gain a better understanding of the use of pharmaco-EEG.
