Senior Keynote Speaker Announcement

Neurofeedback

When thinking about change in science, one major area you might consider is the development of novel technologies. The advancement of neuroscience as a field is highly dependent on new technologies and methodologies. One technique that has gained increasing attention in recent years is neurofeedback. Neurofeedback refers to the method where subjects receive real-time feedback based on their neural activity to reinforce self-control of brain functions. It helps guide and answer novel research questions on self-regulation and provides great potential for clinical application. Therefore, we are very excited to announce that Dr. Stefanie Enriquez-Geppert will join us as a Senior Keynote speaker to present her work in neurofeedback and cognitive control.

Dr. Enriquez-Geppert is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Clinical and Developmental Neuropsychology at the University of Groningen, where she teaches courses on clinical neuropsychology, neurophysiological research methods, as well as research ethics and science integrity. Her research focuses on executive functions and their underlying neurocognitive processes. Furthermore, she investigates the development of novel procedures and therapies for cognitive enhancement, such as neurofeedback. Besides neurofeedback, Dr. Enriquez-Geppert also conducts research in the field of brain-computer interface (BCI), which is a direct communication pathway between the brain’s electrical activity and an external device. 

In her previous research, she has contributed greatly to the field of neurofeedback in both design and assessment, as well as treatment strategies in clinical application. With a focus on EEG, her work showed neurofeedback as a therapeutic tool for improving executive functioning, which prompted her to further study the potential of neurofeedback methods in relation to ADHD intervention. This technological development has brought critical changes in clinical prospects, and reflects a shift from fundamental to more applied research.

If you want to hear more about Dr. Enriquez-Geppert’s amazing research in this field, please join us on May 21st  at Synapsium!
