Brainbox Initiative Workshop at the Frontiers of Human Neurophysiology

Exploring the Frontiers of Human Neurophysiology: Meeting and Workshop

This meeting is a unique opportunity to delve into the fundamental aspects of human neurophysiology, with a focus on skilled motor control and pathophysiology. It also addresses topical issues such as diversity, variability, and novel methodologies. A key differentiator of this meeting is the opportunity for attendees to discuss hotly-debated topics in the field during our point-counterpoint session workshops. The aim is to produce a consensus paper which could be considered for publication.

Satellite Workshop

Following the main meeting, a satellite workshop will be hosted by Brainbox Initiative on 14th December.

Brainbox Initiative Workshop: Fundamentals of Transcranial Ultrasound Stimulation (TUS) and Controllable Pulse Parameter Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (cTMS)

09:00 - 13:00

14th December 2023

Location: New Hunt’s House 
King’s College London Guy’s Campus
Great Maze Pond

Join us for this two-part workshop for an intensive exploration of TUS for neuromodulation and novel TMS methodologies offered by new controllable pulse parameter devices (cTMS).

In this comprehensive half-day course, you will:

  • Delve into the foundational principles, neurophysiology, and biomechanics of TUS techniques.
  • Learn about safety considerations for both animal and human applications.
  • Investigate various stimulation protocols and their effects on brain activity, while also mastering experimental design strategies to address potential confounds.
  • Deepen your knowledge of plasticity, state dependency, and their implications for brain changes induced by TUS.
  • Examine innovative TMS techniques made possible by cutting-edge devices that offer enhanced control of stimulus parameters like stimulus waveform and frequency during single, paired pulse, and repetitive stimulation.
  • Explore how these advances hold promise for enhancing the effectiveness and consistency of TMS as a means of assessing and interacting with brain function.

Your workshop leaders include Professor Robert Chen (University Health Network, Toronto, Canada) and Dr Ricci Hannah (King’s College London, UK), with support from experts at Brainbox Initiative.
