NYC tDCS Workshop 2014
Researchers from the Burke Medical Research Institute were among the international experts invited to present at this year’s NYC tDCS Workshop, held May 6 and 7. The event, hosted by the Grove School of Engineering at the City College of New York, was a two-day intensive workshop focusing on the design and implementation of tDCS clinical trials. tDCS, or transcranial direct current stimulation, involves mild electrical currents applied non-invasively to the brain and has shown promise in treating conditions ranging from depression to spinal cord injury.
Dylan Edwards, Ph.D., P.T., director of the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Human Motor Control Laboratory at BMRI was part of an expert panel on “tDCS in combination with behavioral and cognitive therapy.” Mar Cortes, M.D., a clinical scientist at BMRI, was the moderator for two expert panels: "tDCS in Combination with Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy" and "tDCS with Pharmacotherapy."
