NIBS Summer School 2016
With support from the Volkswagen Foundation, the FBI unit, in cooperation with the Department of Neurology and the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, is organizing a 5-day interdisciplinary late-summer school on non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS).
- The summer school aims at bridging the gap between theoretical background and practical applications of NIBS techniques and covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from animal studies to clinical trials.
- Its objective is to provide a solid foundation in state-of-the-art brain stimulation applications and is designed for both beginners and those who already have prior experience with brain stimulation methodologies.
- The summer school offers young scientists the unique opportunity to acquire valuable basic and advanced knowledge in the field, discuss their own research ideas with other young researchers and invited leading experts, as well as foster future collaboration.
The summer school is targeted at talented and enthusiastic PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who wish to gain more knowledge about NIBS tools and how to apply them to their own work.
The participants should already be working on projects related to at least one of the following topics: cognitive and neural processes, including attention, vision, language, motor control, learning, memory, and sleep, as well as topic related to neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders, such as depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and stroke or traumatic brain injury.
