  • USC Hosts TMS Certification Course - Application Deadline Extended to July 15

    University of Southern California Division of Biokinesiology & Physical Therapy
    Neuroplasticity and Imaging Laboratory is hosting its annual
    Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Certification Course

    Date: August 8-11, 2013

    Instructor: Beth Fisher, PT, PhD, Associate Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy

    Assistant Instructor: Shailesh Kantak, MS, PT, Academic Fellow at the University of Maryland School of Medicine

    Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is developing as a powerful non-invasive tool for studying neuroplasticity in the human brain. It is used 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. This 5 day intensive course provides training in the theory and practice underlying the use of TMS in brain research. The course uses both lecture and hands-on practice of the most commonly used TMS research techniques including:

    • Single Pulse TMS
    • Paired Pulse TMS
    • Repetitive TMS
    • Image-guided TMS using Brainsight Neuro Navigation System™

    This course is designed for researchers, clinicians, graduate students and anyone who is interested in studying brain function using TMS.
    Class size is limited in order to ensure an effective learning experience for all participants. For a course application and additional information, please call, email, or go to our website at

    Applications are due by July 15, 2013. Applications will be considered in the order received.
