Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Rehabilitation Workshop

No Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Workshop is currently scheduled.  We expect to offer the next TMS workshop in spring of 2020.

All workshop applicants must be members of the NC NM4R community.

This workshop is free of charge to all accepted applicants. Due to our funding by United States Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development under award number P2CHD086844, we must restrict admission to the workshops to those applicants who are affiliated with US-based institutions and who are eligible to receive NIH funding.

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Workshop Past Agenda

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 – Basic Principles and Methods in Healthy Individuals

8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
Breakfast and announcements

9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
Welcome to NC NM4R & Historical Perspective of NM4R S
teve Kautz, Ph.D., Rick Segal, PT, Ph.D.

Didactic Training
Objective: This will focus on the suite of TMS approaches used to investigate neurophysiology with TMS. These include single pulse, paired pulse inhibition/facilitation, cortical silent period, recruitment curve generation, paired associative stimulation, and interleaved TMS/MRI. The presentation will include basic neuroscience principles and pharmacology

9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Physics and Experimental Rigor in TMS research
Colleen Hanlon, Ph.D. is the presenter

10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Using TMS as a Probe of cortical excitability: Interleaved TMS-MRI, Single/Paired Pulse
Colleen Hanlon, Ph.D. is the presenter

11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Using TMS as a probe of pharmacology and plasticity: Pharmaco-TMS, Paired Associative Stimulation
Colleen Hanlon, Ph.D. is the presenter

12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Lunch – Discussion of your interests and general Q&A

1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Using TMS as an Intervention: fixed frequency, theta burst, & accelerated rTMS
Colleen Hanlon, Ph.D. is the presenter

2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Hands-on TMS Small Group Training
In this 3-hour module participants will break into groups and get exposure to the following environments:

Neuronavigation System
Interleaved TMS/MRI setup
Magventure TMS system (double blinding and active sha.m. control)
Magstim TMS system & lower extremity laboratory
Brainsway H-Coil laboratory
Closed-loop TMS-EMG laboratory + PAS laboratory

Objectives:
To introduce participants to new, state-of-the-art TMS methods develop.m.ents and biomarkers used as dependent measures
To describe the basic units and theory of electromagnetism, and make sure students understand how the different methods actually interact with the brain to cause stimulation. The importance of scalp-cortex distance will be highlighted as well as creating an effective sham.

To give the participants direct, hands-on practice with different TMS equip.m.ent, neuronavigation, protocol develop.m.ent, and progra.m.ming on the machines.
Wednesday, March 28, 2018 – Clinical applications and considerations for patients

9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
Review and In-Class Quiz regarding information learned on Day 1 Colleen Hanlon, Ph.D.

Didactic Training
Objective: This will focus on the suite of rTMS approaches being used to induce brain and behavioral change in individuals with various neurological diseases. We will highlight some of the most influential studies in the field to date as well as describe the essential ingredients to design a rigorous, conceptually grounded protocol for a given population.
