About the Course

The Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation offers a 5-day intensive course in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) three times per year. The intensive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) course provides a unique opportunity for hands-on learning of the basic principles, standards of use, and potential applications of TMS in clinical neurophysiology, cognitive neuroscience, neurology, and psychiatry.

The course is conducted in small groups of up to 24 participants with formal teaching sessions and ample practical exposure. At the end of the course, participants will have learned and directly experienced how to:

  • Determine motor threshold
  • How to record motor evoked potentials
  • How to conduct cortical mapping
  • Silent period
  • Unput-output curve
  • Paired-pulse TMS studies
  • How to safely apply repetitive TMS

Participants will have also learned how to design TMS studies, write TMS protocols and interpret findings of TMS studies. This course is limited to 24 participants per session.

Note: Applicants will be admitted in the order in which their applications are received. Once a course is full, additional applicants will be added to a wait list and given the opportunity to register for the following course. In the past, this course has reached maximum enrollment several months before its start date.
