Advanced Techniques in Non-invasive Stimulation: Navigated TMS, Home-based tDCS, and Ultrasound
Deep Brain Stimulation and Spinal Cord Stimulation Engineering Principles for Clinicians
This intensive workshop is dedicated to the design and implementation of tDCS in clinical and research settings.
The workshop provides an update on 2021 state-of-the-art comprehensive theoretical background and methodology, with presentations and discussions on the development of professional standards for safety, validity and reproducibility of functional outcomes in tDCS applications, as well as practical experience necessary to acquire the knowledge and skills for tDCS applications.
This tDCS Advanced Theory and Hands-on Workshop distinguishes itself from other tDCS educational initiatives by offering extensive practical experience and an in-depth learning approach, including interactive lectures, facilitated discussion, demonstrations, hands-on step-by-step exercises. The Workshop utilizes versatile educational elements from the basic to expert level and covers the complex framework from neurophysiological research to clinical applications. It is expected that even individuals highly experienced in tDCS will benefit from the advanced and comprehensive training in the state-of-the-art technique. The Workshop promotes expertise in the field of noninvasive brain stimulation and focuses on building competencies in the following areas: Principles and mechanisms of tDCS, electrode preparation and montages, stimulation parameters, protocols and targeted outcomes, safety, tDCS current modeling and dose determination, good practices in tDCS delivery, tDCS clinical and research trial design and implementation, with specific methodologic considerations for HD-tDCS and conventional tDCS in institutional and home-based settings. Education and training will be provided by a seasoned highly experienced team. Previous practical experience with tDCS not required.
This course presents engineering principles relevant to deep brain stimulation (DBS) and spinal cord stimulation (SCS).
The target audience is clinicians that currently utilize or are interested in incorporating DBS and/or SCS technologies into their clinical practice.
The field of neuromodulation is rapidly evolving with a wide range of technologies now clinically available. It is not always clear how different designs or waveform parameters affect the neural response and corresponding efficacy of the stimulation. Therefore, the goal of this course is to provide clinicians with an overview of the engineering principles and biophysics relevant to DBS and SCS. This course will also present the current understanding of the physiological effects and mechanisms of action of standard and emerging forms of DBS and SCS. At the end of the course, attendees will have a better understanding of the physiological and technical factors that determine the neural response to DBS and SCS.
The ultimate goal of this course is to provide attendees with knowledge that will aid in their clinical implementation of DBS and SCS technologies.
