About the Event

Run in collaboration with leading academic and industry neuroscientists, including Dr Sara Tremblay (University of Ottawa), Professor Jean-Francois Lepage (Université de Sherbrooke), Professor Hugo Théoret (Université de Montreal), Dr Jeff Daskalakis (CAMH), and Dr Roch Comeau (Rogue Research), the workshop programme will explore: The basic principles and history of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS); The physiology of TMS of the motor cortex; An examination of common TMS measurements – motor threshold, motor evoked potentials (MEPs), and paired-pulse measurements – through a mixture of demonstration sessions and hands-on experiences; Identifying stimulation sites using neuronavigation techniques; Designing a TMS study from the ground up, including safety and ethical considerations; Introductions to basic repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation paradigms, from standard rTMS protocols to theta burst stimulation; And discussions of clinical applications of rTMS in psychiatry and neurology.
