Conference Overview NYC Neuromodulation 2013 brings together pioneers and emerging innovations in Transcranial Electrical Stimulation. Cutting edge research, clinical trials, and techniques are introduced in a dynamic and interactive format. Learn how the field developed to its current state and the outlook for the next five years. Technologies covered include transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS), transcranial Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS), and High-Definition transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS). Topics covered include design of clinical trials, integration with monitoring technologies (EEG), and deployable technology. Frequent opportunities to interact with speakers and attendees, sponsor exhibits, two large poster sessions, two panel discussions, social events and a certification course provide plenty of networking, educational, investment and collaboration opportunities. There will be five NYC Neuromodulation Awards presented at the end of the conference including Best Poster ($500 prize). The conference is chaired by Dr. Marom Bikson and hosted at the historic City College of New York in New York City.
tDCS Practical Course

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.
