Webinar: Focal Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Using High-Density Theta Burst: Translation and Back-translation

Events Main

11:00 am  – 12:00 pm  EST


Guest Speaker:
Hanbing Lu, Ph.D.

Register to attend a free NIH webinar. Attendees will learn about a new method for administering Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). This new method improves both the instrumentation used to deliver TMS treatment, and the treatment’s magnetic pulse pattern; which when applied to an awake rat treatment model, was shown to provide significant improvement over conventional TMS treatment methods.

This webinar will discuss (i) new instrumentation that overcomes voltage and current limitations seen in devices currently being used for treatment and (ii) novel magnetic pulse patterns that improve TMS’ therapeutic effect. The webinar will be presented by Dr. Hanbing Lu (Staff Scientist, Neuroimaging Research Branch, National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIH).
