ATSIP Dublin Report 2009
The Annual meeting took place 8-10th July 2009
at Trinity College Dublin. Last visited in 2005 there have been
some major changes within the college and City. We met for reception
in the department at 5pm and thereafter frequented O’Neill’s
in Suffolk Street for the initial evening refreshments which
consisted of some find food and Guinness’s and lively
Irish music later.
The conference was opened by chairman Patrick
Holahan who welcomed us to Trinity and the department and started
by saying the meeting would be dedicated to Keith Nicholson
(who had died a few weeks earlier) formerly of John Moores University
in Liverpool who had been the conference organiser in 2008.
The first talk of the meeting on the 9th July
was by Dr Paul Dockree on "Electrophysiological Signals
from EEG and Understanding Lapsing Attention" a rather
mouthful but certainly informative subject. An explanation of
EEG, with applications of the EEG method with cognitive tasks
that are boring but could be fatal (radar screen and detecting
a blip) were given.
