Announcing a new tES Workshop
Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES) has emerged as a revolutionary technique in the field of neuroscience, offering profound insights into the human brain's functions and capabilities. From the 5th to the 7th of December 2023, the Brainbox Initiative is hosting an extensive three-day online workshop on the Fundamentals & Applications of tES, providing a deep dive into the core principles and applications of this cutting-edge technology. This workshop promises an enriching experience for both beginners and experienced practitioners, offering a comprehensive understanding of tES that spans from basics to advanced applications.
The workshop initiates with a focus on fundamental principles and the physiology behind transcranial electrical stimulation. Participants will gain valuable insights into the various types of tES devices available and learn how to effectively utilize these systems. Delving into the nuances of study designs, attendees will engage in group discussions to plan and strategize their own tES studies. These foundational sessions are designed to empower participants with a robust understanding of the theoretical framework that underpins tES applications.
The workshop goes beyond theory, offering practical experience in setting up and executing transcranial electrical stimulation sessions. Participants will explore advanced current flow modeling techniques using tools like ROAST and Neurophet tES Lab, honing their skills to ensure precision and reliability in their experiments.
One of the key highlights of this workshop is the exploration of advanced, multimodal applications of tES. Participants will gain insights into the integration of tES with other cutting-edge technologies such as MRI, EEG, fNIRS, TMS, and more. This interdisciplinary approach opens new avenues for research, allowing attendees to envision innovative experiments and applications that can unravel the mysteries of the human brain.
Hybrid Learning Experience:
In recognition of the diverse learning preferences of attendees, the workshop offers a unique hybrid option. While all lectures and discussions will be conducted virtually, participants have the opportunity to engage in in-person practical tES sessions with the Brainbox Initiative team in Cardiff, UK. This hybrid model ensures a personalised and immersive learning experience, enabling delegates to apply their knowledge in real-time, hands-on scenarios.
Beyond the workshop, all delegates will have the exclusive chance to visit the Brainbox headquarters. This visit promises a firsthand experience of utilizing the devices, methods, and techniques explored during the workshop. While travel restrictions are currently in place, this opportunity signifies a valuable prospect for future engagement and collaboration.
The workshop programs are meticulously curated in collaboration with leading neuroscientists from around the world. These experts bring their wealth of knowledge and practical insights, enriching the workshop experience. Although workshop leaders are yet to be announced, participants can anticipate learning from some of the brightest minds in the field.
The Fundamentals & Applications of tES workshop offers an unparalleled opportunity to delve into the intricacies of transcranial electrical stimulation. From grasping the basics to exploring advanced applications and benefiting from a hybrid learning experience, attendees are poised to gain a holistic understanding of tES. Whether you are a novice eager to embark on your tES journey or an experienced practitioner seeking to enhance your skills, this workshop is your gateway to unlocking the secrets of the human brain through the power of transcranial electrical stimulation.
Delegate rates start from £120.
