Utrecht TMS course
Welcome to the unique Utrecht TMS course
Our course on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) will take place on 8 and 9 December 2020, in Utrecht, the Netherlands. 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.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic Brain Science Tools is working hard to organise an alternative program in case the TMS course can not be organised in person. The alternative program will consist of an online TMS course, in which TMS experts from all over the world will give lectures. Additional information on both the program for the regular TMS course, as well as the alternative TMS course can be found on this website. Please keep an eye out on this website, our Twitter account, and our LinkedIn page.
The first day of the course is mostly aimed at the applciation of TMS in the clinical practice. Clinicians treating a variety of disorders will present their experiences using rTMS for the treatment of major depressive disorder, stroke, tinnitus, and much more. The main goal of the second day is to display the advances in TMS research and research applications. Topics such as the outcome measures of TMS, the biophysics of TMS, and the modeling of TMS coils and brains. For an extensive overview of the topics covered, please have alook at our program.
This course is organized by Brain Science Tools BV, a UMC Utrecht spinoff company manufacturing medical devices for use with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation such as the Neural Navigator, and the Neurosoft company, manufacturing TMS stimulators, EEG devices, and EMG devices. The practical sessions will be using equipment from the organizing companies.
