Presents:

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Workshop

May 25 - May 26, 2017 day 2 of 2
9:00am
Evans Conference Room, WEB 3780
Warnock Engineering Building, 3rd floor.

Description:

The Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC), part of the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute, will be hosting a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Workshop from 9:00am-4:00pm on Thursday, May 25th (includes lunch!) and 9:00am-12:00pm on Friday, May 26th. This will take place at the SCI Institute in the Warnock Engineering Building at the University of Utah. The workshop timing coincides with the recent award of a University of Utah Research Instrumentation Fund (RIF) grant to purchase equipment for a new TMS facility at the Neuropsychiatric Institute in Research Park. Brian Goodwin, PhD will be the keynote speaker and will be with us for the duration of the workshop to provide expert advice and guidance on analysis techniques. Dr. Goodwin has created highly innovative methods for computational and neurophysiological analysis of TMS.

This workshop is designed with the following goals in mind:

  • Introduce scientists and clinicians at the University of Utah who currently use or plan to use TMS in their research.
  • Educate users on TMS analysis methods, particularly those that take advantage of MRI + neuronavigation-guided TMS with simultaneous electroencephalography (EEG).
  • Assess the hardware and instrumentation needs of TMS researchers on campus.
  • Discuss programmatic needs including assistance with study design and Institutional Review Board (IRB) applications.
