The ERP Boot Camp, an 11-day summer workshop on the ERP technique  
funded by NIMH, will be held July 7-17 2008 at UC-Davis. It is  
intended for beginning and intermediate ERP researchers, or people  
who are interested in getting started in ERP research.  It is  
designed for both basic scientists and clinical researchers.

The topics will include:

1) Where do ERPs come from? What do they mean?

2) ERP components

3) The design and interpretation of ERP experiments

4) EEG data acquisition

5) Filtering, artifact rejection, and artifact correction

6) Measuring and analyzing ERP components

7) ERP localization

8) Setting up and running an ERP lab

The Boot Camp consists of lectures on these topics, accompanied by  
discussions of classic and contemporary ERP papers and guided lab  
activities.  It is led by Steve Luck, and the faculty includes many  
distinguished ERP researchers from UC Davis and other universities.

Participants at previous Boot Camps have come from around the world  
and have ranged from beginning graduate students to full professors.  
They have included psychologists, neuroscientists, psychiatrists,  
neurologists, and speech pathologists. However, predoctoral students  
should not apply unless they will have had at least 6 months of  
intensive ERP experience before attending the Boot Camp.

We highly encourage the participation of individuals from  
underrepresented groups.

Funding is available from NIMH to defray some or all of the costs of  
attending the Boot Camp, but is limited to U.S. citizens and  
permanent residents.  International participants are encouraged to  
apply, but they must obtain their own funding.

For more information about the Boot Camp and the application  
procedures, see www.ERPinfo.org

Applications are due on March 31, 2008.
