Utrecht TMS & tDCS course

The Brain Science Tools course on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), MRI-guided neuronavigation and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) will be held on December 7 & 8, 2023. Updates on the program, speakers and venue can be found on this website. Also keep an eye out for additional information through our social media accounts. 

Both days consist of theoretical lectures providing the required background of TMS, and practical sessions where you can learn how to apply TMS protocols, perform MRI guided neuronavigation, and measure electromyograms (EMG) simultaneously. 

The first day of the course is mostly aimed at the application of TMS and MRI-guided neuronavigation in clinical practice. Clinicians treating a variety of disorders will present their experiences using navigated rTMS for the treatment of major depressive disorder, stroke, or other clinical indications. The morning of day 2 covers advances in research applications of TMS and neuronavigation. Topics such as the biophysics of TMS, TMS-based motor mapping and paired-pulse TMS outcome measures will be discussed. The afternoon of day 2 is dedicated to tDCS and hosted by Soterix Medical. We will discuss tDCS background, the practical considerations and clinical applications. For an extensive overview of the topics covered, please have alook at our program.

This course is organized by Brain Science Tools, Soterix Medical and Neurosoft. The practical sessions will be using equipment from the organizing companies.
