One-day Introduction to Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation – By Request Only

Event Navigation

Rogue Resolutions Non Invasive Brain Stimulation, Neuromodulation

One-day Introduction to Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Workshop: Bringing the experience to you.

This one-day course will be an introduction to the theory, physiology and applications of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES) (tACS & tDCS).

The Rogue Resolutions product and application specialists will also discuss how to integrate NIBS with imaging techniques, as well as demonstrating examples of experimental paradigms using both TMS and tES.

  • Suitable for academics of any level that have a potential interest in non-invasive brain stimulation
  • Completely free of charge

To arrange a workshop at your institution, please contact brainbox@rogue-resolutions.com.

 

What to expect:

Introduction to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS):

  • Introduction to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as a non-invasive means of brain stimulation
  • Basic physiology of TMS
  • Common measurements that are made using TMS including motor evoked potentials (MEPs) and phosphenes in addition to other brain imaging techniques
  • Methods of identifying brain stimulation sites based on ‘hunting’ methods or pre-existing functional (fMRI) or anatomical co-ordinates
  • Introduction to basic TMS paradigms including rTMS and single pulse techniques

Demonstrations:

Using Neuronavigation to assist the process of evoking MEPs and the basic integration of a TMS site into experimental paradigms.

Introduction to Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES):

  • Introduction to different Transcranial Electric Stimulation (tES) paradigms such as Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS) and Transcranial Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS)
  • Introduction to tDCS, whereby anodal or cathodal tDCS can be used to modulate cortical excitability and the physiological basis for its effect
  • Introduction to tACS whereby sinusoidal waveforms could cause frequency dependent changes in oscillatory rhythms
  • Choice of task, control conditions and stimulation (tDCS or tACS) parameters based on functional networks and the anatomy of its constituent parts or an estimation of induced electric field
  • Practical considerations and potential limitations of tES paradigms

Demonstrations:

Electrode preparation and placement and the effect of anodal and cathodal tDCS on MEP amplitudes evoked by TMS

The workshop is aimed at both Masters and PhD students but is suitable for academics of any level that have a potential interest in non-invasive brain stimulation and is completely free of charge.
