FFR workshop

Dear all,


This is a reminder that the abstract submission deadline for the FFR workshop is 15 March 2016

The FFR workshop is a two day workshop on the Frequency Following Response to be held on 19 - 20 May 2016 at Boston University. The idea of the workshop is to bring the FFR community together and to open up the discussion on the origins and interpretation of the response, explore new recording and analysis techniques, and discuss clinical applications as well as hot topics in the field. The workshop will consist of several oral presentations, round table discussions, and poster sessions.  

The following speakers have confirmed their contributions (titles subject to change):

  • Prof. E. Bartlett (Purdue University, USA): “Overcompensation in older males -- for hearing”
  • Prof. M. Malmierca (University of Salamanca, Spain): “Subcortical stimulus-specific adaption“
  • Dr. D. Ruggles (University of Minneapolis, USA): “Complex auditory processing through the lens of simultaneous subcortical and cortical sustained EEG responses“
  • Dr. V. Easwar (The Hospital for Sick Children, Canada): “Speech-evoked envelope following responses as a hearing aid outcome measure“
  • Prof. N. Kraus (Northwestern University, USA): “FFR to inform listening disorders in the clinic and the classroom“
  • Dr. H. Bharadwaj (Massachusetts General Hospital, USA): “Factors contributing to EFR variability“
  • Dr. L. Varghese (Boston University, USA): “Why your EFR experiment probably won’t work“
You can submit your abstracts by sending an email to Axelle Calcus at acalcus@xxxxxx. All participants are invited to present their research in poster sessions. There will be an opportunity for a few to present work orally. If you would like to take this opportunity please state this when you submit the abstract. Abstract length must not exceed 400 words. Notification of abstract acceptance/rejection will be made no later than April 10 2016.
