Original Synapsy Symposium abstract (ESCAP 2017 Congress in Geneva, Switzerland). Scheduled for Sunday 9 July 2017, 17:45 PM. Session code: S02-12.
Symposium at the 2017 ESCAP Congress (Geneva) on Electro-physiological brain correlates of developmental psychopathology and the early adverse experience that poses risk for it, organized by the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research – Synapsy.
Chair: Virginie Perizzolo Pointet.
The present symposium considers electro-physiological brain correlates of developmental psychopathology and the early adverse experience that poses risk for it. Four different speakers would present their work and results reporting: 1) asymmetry of frontal cortical electroencephalogram (EEG) activity as a biomarker of vulnerability to emotional and behavioral problems in childhood; 2) results from an attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment study comparing slow cortical potential (SCP) neurofeedback and behavioral self-management training in children; 3) temporal dynamics of spontaneous gaze processing in unaffected offspring of parents with bipolar disorder; and 4) the effect of maternal posttraumatic stress disorder related to interpersonal violence (IPV-PTSD) on school-aged child symptoms in response to an emotional face matching task. The presentations will be followed by a discussion led by Dr Tomas Ros.
