Introduction to transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and High Definition transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS)
- Mon, April 1, 2013
- 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Burke Medical Research Institute, in conjunction with Soterix Medical East, is hosting one-day intensive workshop on the fundamentals of the theoretical and practical aspects of transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and High-Definition transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS). The event will be held at the Burke Rehabilitation Center's Billings Building on its main campus at 785 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains.
Preceding the hands-on demonstration and break-out sessions, the day begins with lectures by pioneers in the field of tDCS who will provide a general background on tDCS mechanisms and protocols including live demonstration of tDCS. Issues related to dose decision, safety, regulatory compliance, and best clinical practices will be introduced.
