Successful TMS Workshop at DRCMR

With a special focus on multi-modal combinatons of TMS with other neuroimaging techniques

 

This year, we were in the lucky position to welcome 20 highly motivated participants from 13 different countries and offer not only lectures from on-site TMS experts, such as Hartwig Siebner and and Anke Karabanov, but also from external speakers, in particular Til-Ole Bergmann, Estelle Raffin and Frank Padberg, who gave insights into various techniques and applications of TMS as well as shared their own experiences and research areas.

During the three days of the workshop, 12 lectures in total were held in the morning in which the participants learned about basic as well as advanced applications of (multi-modal) TMS. In the afternoons, the knowledge gained from the morning lectures were applied in 6 hands-on sessions. In particular, the practical application of the learned principles were highly appreciated by our participants, who found the possibility to gain practical experience in a guided setting very interesting. 

The daily work in groups and the traditional Danish Christmas Dinner on the second day created an interactive environment in which participants collaborated and networked actively, not only among each other but also with the speakers and hands-on lecturers. 

Our annual TMS Workshop at the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) provides in-depth knowledge on the physics, basic applications and practical setup of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) in three intensive days of lectures and practical sessions. The workshop adresses medical doctors, researcher at any level of their education, psychologists and other experts interested in the field of magnetic stimulation. The programme is divided into keynote lectures in the mornings and practical hands-on sessions in the afternoons, where we demonstrate the day's learned principles and encourage our participants to actively participate. We constantly try to contribute with both technical and physiological background and to cover clinical as well as research applications, with a special focus on multi-modal combinations of TMS with other neuroimaging techniques (EEG-TMS, fMRI-TMS).
