The Neuroplasticity and Imaging Laboratory directed Dr. Beth
Fisher, Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy, University of
Southern California will provide a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
(TMS) training course during summer and are welcome all the faculties
and students who are interested to join in. See Below for further
informations.
Thank you.


TMS is developing as a powerful non-invasive tool for studying
the human brain. It is used both to measure and modulate brain
excitability. TMS used in conjunction with other neuroimaging techniques
can provide greater insight into human brain function.
The course is designed for graduate students, researchers, and
clinicians who are interested in studying brain function by using TMS.
This is a one week intensive training course in the theory and
practice underlying the use of TMS in brain research. The course uses
both lecture and laboratory format. The course includes hands-on
practice of all the most commonly used TMS research techniques including
single pulse, paired-pulse, repetitive TMS and brain navigation system
(Brainsight).
The course will be held on August 20 - August 24, 2007; 8:00 am
to 5:00 pm in the Neuroplasticity and Imaging Laboratory (NAIL) on the
Health Sciences Campus of the University of Southern California.
