Advanced Neurostimulation Techniques
2-Day Workshop

This workshop is intended for researchers, academics and clinicians interested in learning up-to-date methods of non-invasive brain stimulation. Participants will be familiarized with the theoretical as well as practical aspects of applying transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The workshop will provide deeper insights on advanced technologies, particularly on the know-how for combining electrophysiological measurements with non-invasive brain stimulation.

Here some of the concepts you are expected to take home after this 2 day hands-on workshop:

  • TMS-EEG
  • tCS-EEG
  • Multi-channel stimulation and current flow modeling
  • Combining neuroimaging with NIBS
  • EEG-TMS Neuronavigation

Presenters

Dr. Andre Brunoni
Dr. Andre Brunoni is the director of the Service of interdisciplinary Neuromodulation at the University of São Paulo and a Humbodlt visiting professor at LMU Munich. His research involves the use of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and “deep” transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of mental disorders, such as mood disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder and schizophrenia. He is a top leader in the field with more than 100 published articles in peer reviewed journals

M.Sc. Alexander Hunold
Alexander Hunold received his Master's Degree (with honours) in Biomedical Engineering from Technische Universität Ilmenau (TUI) in 2012. Currently he is a PhD candidate at TUI in the Institute for Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (Prof. Jens Haueisen), where he dedicaes his research to develop volume conductors and current models for tCS, validation systems for tCS devices and new electrode technologies for tCS applications. He has also conducted research investigating the sensitivity comparison of EEG and MEG and on source localization using fetal MEG

M.Sc. Sophia Wunder
Sophia received her Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from Technische Universität Ilmenau, Germany, in 2016. For her Master's studies she worked with M. Sc. Alexander Hunold and Prof. Jens Haueisen on a bi-functional cap design for tCS-EEG applications. In 2016 she joined the neuroCare Group (neuroConn technology) as part of the Research and Development team.

Dr. Eliana García Cossio
Dr. Eliana García Cossio is a biomedical engineer and has a PhD in neuroscience. Her research involves the use of new rehabilitation approach for improving motor rehabilitation of stroke patients, such as clinical Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI), EMG-decoders as well as NIBS. In her PhD studies at the University of Tübingen, she and her colleagues pioneered the first methods towards combining tCS with EEG / MEG. In 2016 she joined the neuroCare Group as a Science Specialist and neuroCademy lecturer.
