Dear colleagues,

it's my pleasure to announce in behalf of my co-chairs a special session 
at Neurotechnix 2014, 25- 26 October, 2014 - Rome, Italy 

  Brain-computer Interfaces and Brain Stimulation for Neurorehabilitation

Important Dates
Paper Submission: July 17, 2014
Authors Notification: July 31, 2014
Camera Ready and Registration: August 8, 2014


Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) and brain stimulation are unique 
methods for neurorehabilitation because they allow a direct interaction 
with the patient's brain. BCIs enable biofeedback approaches for 
paralyzed patients, while brain stimulation techniques modulate the 
activity of neuronal circuits to support brain reorganization. However, 
towards their application as reliable treatment options, important 
challenges such as a deeper understanding of neural (re-)organization, 
the design of suitable feedback and stimulation paradigms, the 
adaptation to individual patients and the transfer from the laboratory 
to clinical settings need to be faced.

We invite neuroscientists, engineers and clinicians to submit papers 
discussing recent developments and future trends in the fields of 
neurostimulation and BCIs with a focus on their application towards the 
rehabilitation of patients.
