Event Details

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

5-7 pm


Course Description:

This course will provide an overview of the use of non-invasive brain stimulation with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to investigate brain structure and function in clinical populations relevant to neurorehabilitation. Examples of TMS measures will be provided to illustrate their physiological and clinical significance and provide a rationale for how they are used in contemporary research.  Current research findings will also be presented to illustrate utility of TMS in understanding response to rehabilitation intervention following stroke.


Course Objectives:

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  •  Understand the differences between single-pulse, paired-pulse and repetitive TMS.
  •  Differentiate the various forms of TMS for understanding brain structure and function
  •  Understand and articulate the risks and contraindications for use of TMS
  • Understand the strengths and limitations of using TMS to study recovery of function
  • Understand the clinical implications of findings from TMS studies
  • Identify questions that can be addressed in relevant clinical populations using TMS
