Transcranial Brain Stimulation in Cognitive Neuroscience Workshop
The event will be organized as in presence workshop.
The workshop will focus on the state of the art in the use of TBS in cognitive neuroscience. Through the proposed sessions, we aim to provide an opportunity for focused and critical discussions on current empirical evidence and theoretical issues concerning the use of transcranial brain stimulation in cognitive neuroscience. Moreover, emphasis will be placed on how collaboration between laboratories within an open science framework can improve the advancement of knowledge in this research area.
The workshop will be organised in two main sessions/days.
During the first day, we will start off with where we stand in the use of transcranial magnetic, electric and ultrasound stimulation, covering general aspects of “where we stand on brain stimulation” in a wider context. The last part of the day will be dedicated to an open discussion on the current multi-centre tACSChallenge initiative.
The second day will cover the use of transcranial brain stimulation in combination with other tools, with a focus on combining TMS with EEG. The last part of the day will be dedicated to promote possible strategies to improve reliability of studies in relation to the distinctive open points of this field with an open science approach, i.e., standardisation in experimental protocols, data sharing, TMS-EEG collaborative efforts.
All speakers will be invited and there will be no parallel sessions. The workshop will be organized around a debate among speakers and discussions after each session with dedicated discussants.
