3rd Annual Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Certification Course

Date: August 10-14, 2008

University of Southern California
Division of Biokinesiology & Physical Therapy
Neuroplasticity and Imaging Laboratory

Background: TMS is developing as a powerful non-invasive tool for
studying neuroplasticity in the human brain. It is used both to
measure and modulate brain excitability. TMS is currently being used
to study brain changes following intervention in healthy and
pathologic populations. In addition, it is being studied as a
treatment modality to augment recovery in a variety of disorders.

Course Overview:

This is a five day 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 TMS
Paired Pulse TMS
Repetitive TMS
Image-guided TMS using Brainsight Neuro Navigation System(tm)

Participants: The course is designed for
Researchers
Clinicians
Graduate students
Interested in studying brain function using TMS

Registration: Class size is limited in order to ensure an effective
learning experience for all participants. Call or email for an
application and submit it by June 1, 2008. Applications will be
considered in the order received.

Cost:
Non-Student: $1,000
