EEG Awareness Weeks – What EEG can do for your trial

The Siesta Group announces the "EEG Awareness Weeks" from Jan 7 – Mar 31, 2013. During this time The Siesta Group’s CEO Georg Dorffner and CSO Peter Anderer are holding free webinars on the topic "What EEG can do for your trial" and offer all new customers a free feasibility analysis concerning efforts and costs of including EEG in an early or late phase trial to address CNS efficacy or safety of your drug.

Webinar dates:

  • Thursday, Feb 14, 4pm GMT (11am EST)
  • Friday, Mar 15, 3pm GMT (11am EDT)

The webinar is directed toward all clinical trial professionals who work on the development of CNS-active drugs and plan a new early or late phase clinical trial. Electroencephalography (EEG), including Event-Related Potentials (ERP), can be an objective endpoint of choice in many cases – this webinar will make clear why, when and with what benefit.


  • Main EEG paradigms and endpoints
  • Brain disorders and drug action as seen in the EEG
  • The key-lock principle
  • PD/PK modeling with EEG
  • EEG topographies
  • How The Siesta Group can support clinical trial EEG
