Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the regualtions imposed by the Dutch Institute for Health and Environment (RIVM), we are forced to postpone the Brain Science Tools TMS course to a later moment. We sincerely regret this situation, but the health of all participants, our lecturers, and our colleaugues is our top priority.
Our course on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) will be postponed to June 2021. Information regarding the program, lecturers, and the exact date and venue will soon be updated on this website. Also keep an eye out for additional information through our social media accounts. As an alternative program, we will organise webinars both on the 8th as well as the 9th of December, 2020. More information can be found at the events page of our website.
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 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.
