MedTech West seminar on Nov 23: An overview of the current and possible future applications of TMS by Magnus Thordstein
Since the first report in 1985 of its practice in human subjects, the use of the technique Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for non-invasive, safe investigation of the nervous system has greatly expanded. Initially, TMS was used for exploration of the central parts of the motor system. Later, its practice has revealed various physiological and pathophysiological aspects of central nervous (CNS) functioning in humans. Not the least, it’s come to be an important part of the pre-operative investigation for neurosurgery with possibility to export findings to neuronavigational systems used under operation. Moreover, it is the most well documented technique with regard to the field of neuromodulation, i.e. the possibility to, again non-invasively, change the functioning of the CNS. This is an expanding field that holds promise to provide new and possibly more efficient modes of therapy for a wide range of CNS disturbances.
In the presentation Magnus Thordstein, Ass. professor and a Senior lecturer in Clinical Neurophysiology at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, will give an overview of its current and possible future applications.
