Neuronavigation and TMS course

March 26–27, 2015
The Netherlands, Utrecht, Utrecht University

This one-day course is intended for our customers using The Neural Navigator for MRI guidance of TMS, and the Neuro-MS/D magnetic stimulation. In the morning experts from UMC Utrecht, Brain Science Tools BV and Neurosoft do Brasil will give presentations on TMS and Neuronavigation for clinical and research use. In the afternoon, demonstrations and hands-on workshops will allow you to learn how to perform TMS and MRI guided Neuronavigation yourself, using our equipment. The sessions are supervised by our experts. Groups will be small with a maximum of 10 participans. This will allow for personal attention by our experts and many room for questions and time with the equipment.

During the course, you will work with our product the Neural Navigator and with the Neuro-MS/D TMS equipment. The course is brought to you by Brain Science Tools BV and Neurosoft do Brasil in a joint effort.

Educational aims and objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to plan effective TMS treatment protocols and monitor outcome. Specifically, you will be trained to use MRI guided TMS for precise coil placement over DLPFC and other areas of interest in individual patients using the Neural Navigator, and you will be familiar with Neuro-MS/D TMS and EMG equipment to administer TMS and monitor the effects with EMG. You will receive a certificate confirming your participation and accomplishments.
