tDCS PRACTICAL COURSE
Open by pre-registration only and with strictly limited space (Saturday tDCS course SOLD OUT - Friday course still OPEN), the tDCS practical
course will cover the basic aspects of safe and reproducible tDCS set-up using industry standard equipment. Hardware, accessories, and
software will be covered. No background is assumed. By the end of the course, participants are expected to be proficient in the basic set-up of
tDCS, HD-tDCS, and related simulation technologies. The course director, Dr. Adam J. Woods, Ph.D. (University of Florida), and instructors have
extensive clinical and research experience and will be able to address all practical questions. Participants will be awarded a tDCS practical
training certificate upon completion of the course. This course is not open to general conference attendees and requires pre-registration.
Note there are two sessions, Saturday and Friday morning, which do not conflict with the conference lectures.

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW
NYC Neuromodulation 2013 brings together pioneers and emerging innovations in
Transcranial Electrical Stimulation. Cutting edge research, clinical trials, and techniques
are introduced in a dynamic and interactive format. Learn how the field developed to its
current state and the outlook for the next five years. Technologies covered include
transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), transcranial Alternating Current
Stimulation (tACS), transcranial Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS), and High-Definition
transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS). Topics covered include design of
clinical trials, integration with monitoring technologies (EEG), and deployable
technology. Frequent opportunities to interact with speakers and attendees, sponsor
exhibits, two large poster sessions, two panel discussions, social events and a
certification course provide plenty of networking, educational, investment and
collaboration opportunities. There will be five NYC Neuromodulation Awards
presented at the end of the conference including Best Poster ($500 prize). The
conference is chaired by Dr. Marom Bikson and hosted at the historic City College of New
York in New York City. Join us for what will be a seminal event.

WITH PANEL DISCUSSIONS AND tDCS TRAINING COURSE
CONFERENCE CHAIR




INTERACTIVE PANELS
NYC Neuromodulation 2013 will feature two dynamic panels in which leading clinicians
and scientists will discuss and debate issues in Transcranial Electrical Stimulation. Dr.
Jason Carmel, MD., Ph.D. (Weill Cornell Medical College) will moderate the panel on
non-invasive brain stimulation in pediatrics and Dr. Mar Cortes, M.D. (Weill Cornell
Medical College) will moderate a panel on optimized procedures for tDCS in stroke.
Open to questions and comments from the audience, these panels promise to be lively
and address the most timely challenges in Transcranial Electrical Stimulation.
Marom Bikson, Ph.D.
