EC-15: Basic principles of TMS

Date: Friday October 2, 2015

TMS is a multipurpose tool for clinical neurophysiology.  It has diagnostic uses in the clinic, is developing for therapy, and has been dramatically valuable in teaching us about brain and spinal cord physiology.  TMS has been available for two decades but information about it continues to grow, and new methods employing TMS are being created.  This course is meant to bring clinical neurophysiologists up to date on principles of TMS including the new technique of combining TMS with EEG.
