This is a recurring workshop 4 times a year:
19 December 2017 – 20 December 2017 (neuroCademy Australia, Sydney)
14 March 2018 – 15 March 2018 (neuroCademy Munich, Germany)
24 May 2018 – 25 May 2018 (neuroCademy Nijmegen, The Netherlands)
25 October 2018 – 26 October 2018 (neuroCademy Nijmegen, The Netherlands)
13 December 2018 – 14 December 2018 (neuroCademy Munich, Germany)
This workshop is for psychologists, psychiatrists, related healthcare professionals and researchers who are interested in using the technique of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) combined with psychotherapy for the treatment of Depression, OCD and other indications. Advanced topics, such as the use of EEG and QEEG to predict and optimize rTMS treatment, will be covered.
Other neuromodulation techniques (tDCS, tACS), as well as sleep problems and chornobiology will also be covered.
During this course there is ample time dedicated to hands-on training with TMS equipment.
Presented by: Dr. Martijn Arns, Trevor Brown (PhD) and Dr. Mark Ryan
The 2-day course will have a focus on:
- The use and theoretical background of rTMS in clinical practice
- Working mechanism of TMS and safety aspects
- The use of rTMS in the treatment of depression
- An overview of the use of rTMS in other disorders
- The use of EEG and QEEG along with rTMS for safety aspects, the prediction of treatment outcomes and markers for responders/non-responders.
- Other neuromodulation techniques such as tDCS and tACS/tRNS.
In addition to the theoretical part, there will be time dedicated to hands-on practice for various protocols and applications on different TMS machines. There will be room for discussion and the newest findings from our own experience in clinical practice will be shared. This course is most suitable for clinicians, psychiatrists and psychologists who have basic knowledge of neuroscience and consider using rTMS treatment in their own practices. Also researchers wanting to use rTMS in their studies are welcome.
About Dr. Martijn Arns
Dr. Arns is a leading expert on neurofeedback and personalised medicine in ADHD and Depression. Over the last decade, he has pioneered the application of QEEG-informed neurofeedback and rTMS for these conditions and is the most published researcher in this area. Courses held by Dr. Arns are highly sought-after, with participants travelling from all over the world to attend his workshops, usually held in Nijmegen (The Netherlands).
Reading materials are provided on the first day and are included in the course costs. For further background reading material also see our recent review on rTMS in depression. A full list of relevant scientific publications can be found here.
