tDCS Practical Course

Open by pre-registration only and with strictly limited space Open by pre-registration only and with strictly limited space (Saturday tDCS course SOLD OUT - Friday course still OPEN), the tDCS practical course will cover the basic aspects of safe and reproducible tDCS set-up using industry standard equipment. Hardware, accessories, and software will be covered. No background is assumed. By the end of the course, participants are expected to be proficient in the basic set-up of tDCS, HD-tDCS, and related simulation technologies. The course director, Dr. Adam J. Woods, Ph.D. (University of Florida), and instructors have extensive clinical and research experience and will be able to address all practical questions. Participants will be awarded a tDCS practical training certificate upon completion of the course. This course is not open to general conference attendees and requires pre-registration.

Note the course will run on Saturday morning so attendees will not miss any part of the conference.

Introduction to transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) in Neuropsychiatric research

Event Time June 3-4, 2013
Event Location Institut Guttmann in Barcelona, Spain
Topic(s) Introduction to theoretical and practical aspects of tDCS
Director(s) Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD, and Felipe Fregni, MD,PhD

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a technique of noninvasive brain stimulation with strong potentiality in the field of medical and neuroscientific research. tDCS was first established in neuroscience research in the 1950’s and 60’s, but has seen a rapid growth particularly in the last 5 years. The intent of this 2-day intensive is to familiarize participants with the fundamentals of the theoretical and practical aspects of tDCS.
The theoretical considerations will include lectures on safety, mechanisms of action, and previous application in research settings. The practical considerations will include sessions on device set-up and parameters for experimental utilization. Regulatory aspects of the use of tDCS in research will also be addressed.

Neurorehabilitation Enhancement Techniques

Event Time Friday March 22, 2013 8:00 am to 12:00 pm
Topic(s) Spinal Cord/Nerve Root Disorders, Subspecialty in Focus
Director(s) Randolph Marshall MD, FAAN

Brain stimulation, robotics, and circuitry-enhancing pharmacological agents have made substantial contributions to the understanding of basic brain mechanisms underlying motor recovery, language, attention, executive functioning, and social cognition. More importantly to the clinician, the techniques have direct treatment implications as they have been used to treat disorders such as aphasia, neglect, depression, and motor control after brain injury. Faculty will address these topics as they pertain to application in clinical practice through lectures, demonstrations, and a panel discussion. This program is offered in partnership with the American Society of Neurorehabilitation, Society for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology, the AAN Neural Repair and Rehabilitation Section, and the AAN Behavioral Neurology Section.
