Award Sponsors

Brain & Language (Elsevier)

Sponsor of the SNL Early Career Award
An interdisciplinary journal, Brain & Language focuses on the neurobiological mechanisms underlying human language. The journal covers the large variety of modern techniques in cognitive neuroscience, including lesion-based approaches as well as functional and structural brain imaging, electrophysiology, cellular and molecular neurobiology, genetics, and computational modeling. All articles must relate to human language and be relevant to an elaboration of its neurobiological basis. Along with an emphasis on neurobiology, journal articles are expected to take into account relevant data and theoretical perspectives from psychology and linguistics.

Language, Cognition & Neuroscience (Routledge)

Sponsor of the SNL Distinguished Career Award
Language, Cognition & Neuroscience publishes high-quality papers taking an interdisciplinary approach to the study of brain and language, and promotes studies that integrate cognitive theoretical accounts of language and its neural bases. The Journal publishes both high quality, theoretically-motivated cognitive behavioural studies of language function, and papers which integrate cognitive theoretical accounts of language with its neurobiological foundations.

Our multi-modal EEG solutions provide ultimate flexibility to obtain high quality research grade EEG data, whether in a lab (eego™ mylab), a mobile environment that ensures full freedom of movement (eego™ sports) or from the palm of your hand (eego™ mini).

visor2™ product range meets the most demanding research and clinical requirements in neuroscience and neuromodulation, with new features for neuronavigated rTMS, multimodality functional mapping and extended EEG/EMG for the most advanced research in neuromodulation

waveguard™ EEG caps: the easy-to-apply EEG caps in different configurations (standard EEG, TMS, MEG and fMRI compatible) and layouts, ranging from a clinical montage to specialized high-density electrode configurations. Incorporating the latest developments on dry electrode technology, we proudly present our industry-leading waveguard touch EEG cap.

neo™, the new generation neonatal aEEG monitor is an affordable solution that provides the richest information possible, designed with an eye for simplicity. Amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG or also known as CFM) is a non-invasive method for continuous monitoring of brain functions. Featuring high prognostic value and easy application, aEEG is increasingly used in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) to evaluate the neurological status of infants, detect early signs of brain malfunction and steer neuroprotective interventions during the critical period.
