The Symposium covered topics such as comparing baseline brain activity with cognitive activity

The 2nd Symposium on Cognitive Neuroengineering and Computational Neuroscience is jointly organised by DSTO and UniSA.

The event is a specialised forum for Australia’s leading cognitive neuroengineering and computational neuroscience researchers to showcase current research, connect and network with other like-minded researchers, and consider the future of cognitive neuroengineering in light of practical, ethical and social constraints.

The primary focus of this symposium/workshop will be on the enabling technologies systems, methodologies, techniques and future developments that underpin cognitive neuroengineering and computational neuroscience research with a special focus on Defence applications and their impacts. Defence Force related applications such as the prevention/treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) will also be of interest. This will include current/future research paradigms exploring the characterisation and objective measurement of healthy human cognition; mathematical and other techniques for extracting meaningful information from electroencephalogram (EEG) data; technical developments such as real-time processing of EEG data under varying degrees of cognitive and affective load; and how societal impacts may help/hinder future developments in these areas.
