This year, the world famous NYC Neuromodulation 2020 Conference will be held online for the first time. Researchers and speakers from around the world will gather on the online platform to tell listeners about the latest trends and innovations in the field of neuromodulation and brain research.
Neurosoft will take part in the NYC Neuromodulation Conference for the first time as a speaker. In TMS session, together with our colleagues from UMC Utrecht (The Netherlands), Soterix Medical (New York), and Brain Science Tools (the Netherlands), we will introduce the mechanisms and equipment used in TMS, provide the overview of many treatment and diagnostic protocols that now exist, and highlight their clinical and research potential.
We will discuss new developments such as the advantages of MRI guidance of TMS treatment, new navigated TMS options for diagnostic measures in neurology, and new techniques that help to gain a better understanding and optimization of TMS practices. The session will end with a live workshop of several new TMS, neuronavigation and cortical mapping techniques, where the audience can interact with the operators through a live video session.
Session starts: Tuesday, April 21st 2020 | 10 AM (EDT) / 15:00 (GMT+1)
Duration: 2 hours
- Nickolay Smirnov (Neurosoft): What happens in the brain when we deliver TMS pulse? (including the introduction into TMS protocols)
- Bas Neggers (UMCU, Brain Science Tools): Current practice and future directions of MRI guided TMS and navigated cortical mapping
- Rick Dijkhuizen + Jord Vink: state of the art of MRI guided rTMS treatment and longitudinal navigated motor mapping of subacute stroke: the BSTARS trial
- Jord Vink: Live workshop of therapeutic rTMS, diagnostic monophasic TMS, navigated MEP cortical mapping.
Each lecture/workshop will take 30 minutes.
