New Mexico Clinical Neurostimulation Conference 2017

Advances in the field of neurostimulation and neuromodulation offer exciting promises for improving human behavior and reducing symptoms of brain and mental illness. Novel, non-invasive technologies including transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are increasingly being investigated and applied clinically to improve the quality of life of various neurological and behavioral conditions.  

You are cordially invited to participate in a meeting of researchers and clinicians interested in the field of brain stimulation. This meeting will include keynote presentations by leading researchers in the field of neurostimulation and hands-on demonstration and training on the use of tDCS technologies. Additionally, there will be a poster session and cocktail reception for the opportunity to network. This meeting offers the opportunity to learn and share all interested, novices and experts alike, in this exciting frontier!

NM Clinical Neurostimulation 2017 is jointly organized by Professor Vincent Clark, a pioneer of tDCS research at the University of New Mexico, and The Center for Brain Recovery and Repair at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
