Brain Stimulation in Children - Neurophysiology and Therapeutics

Brain stimulation technologies are rapidly advancing the understanding and treatment of neurological disease. Applications to the plastic developing brain are ripe with potential but just emerging. Attendees will be fascinated by the sophisticated neurophysiology afforded by TMS. Translational therapeutic methods (rTMS, TDCS) will inspire ideas to directly impact patients. Deep brain stimulation and brain computer interfaces will be explored to complete the spectrum.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Recognize the abilities of non-invasive brain stimulation to map and measure complex neurophysiology across disorders of the developing brain.
2. Appreciate the translation of such knowledge into new clinical trials of therapeutic non-invasive brain stimulation in multiple disorders including stroke, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and depression.
3. Explore applications of implantable brain stimulation technologies in children including deep brain stimulation and brain computer interfaces.
