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.
