Workshops

This year, we again offer two workshops prior to the conference. They will take place on Tuesday, June 13th 2017 (starting from approx. 9:00 am) and Wednesday, June 14th 2017 (until approx. 1:00 pm). Young scientists can register for the workshop »Eine Einführung in die Spektralanalyse und Auswertung von ereigniskorrelierten Potentialen im EEG (An introduction into spectral analysis and analysis of event-related potentials in the EEG)« or workshop 2 »Eine Einführung in Bayes-Statistik mit praktischen Beispielen in JASP (An introduction to Bayesian statistics with practice examples in JASP)« until May 1st 2017 by sending an e-mail with the subject »Preconference Workshops PuG2017« to anne_gaertner@tu-dresden.de. The workshop fee is 15 € (10 € for members of DGPs or DGPA) for the EEG workshop and 30 € (10 € for members of DGPs or DGPA) for workshop 2. The fee includes participation, coffee breaks and a dinner on June 13th 2017. We would like to thank the DGPA and the section Biological Psychology and Neuropsychology of the DGPs for their financial support. Early registration is recommended, as the number of participants is limited to 20 per workshop (places will be assigned in order of registration).

Workshop 1:
»Eine Einführung in die Spektralanalyse und Auswertung von ereigniskorrelierten Potentialen im EEG (An introduction into spectral analysis and analysis of event-related potentials in the EEG)«

Speaker: Dr. Ewald Naumann
Room: D 324, Campus I, Building D, Trier University

This workshop is aimed at novice EEG-researchers and covers the basics of spectral analysis of EEG-data and the analysis of event-related potentials and necessary preprocessing steps (e.g. artifact correction and filtering). Practical exercises will be completed using the software Brain Vision Analyzer and a dataset provided for this purpose.
This workshop is financially supported by the company MES Forschungsysteme, Gilching, and can thus be offered at a reduced cost.

Ewald Naumann: Trier University, academic director (retired), lecturer at the Research Institute for Psychobiology and at Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. Head of the Psychophysiology Lab of Psychology Department I, Trier University, from 1986 until 2016. Current research interests: psychobiological models of altered states of consciousness.

Workshop 2:
»An introduction to Bayesian statistics with practice examples in JASP«

Speaker: Dr. Anna-Lena Schubert
Room: Library of the Institute of Psychobiology, room JU 2.110/2.120, Johanniterufer 15, 54290 Trier

This workshop offers an introduction to Bayesian statistics. It covers the basics of Bayesian inferential statistics, how to handle priors and assumptions, as well as practical differences between frequentist and Bayesian statistics. Practice examples will be conducted with the software JASP.

Anna-Lena Schubert: Studied psychology from 2007-2012 at the University of Heidelberg and is a research associate in the lab of Prof. Dirk Hagemann since 2012. She finished her PhD in July 2016 on the relation between information processing speed and intelligence. From August to December 2016 she worked with Joachim Vandekerckhove at the Cognition and Individual Differences Lab at the University of California, Irvine on a Bayesian cognitive latent variable model for the simultaneous analysis of electrophysiological and behavioral data.
