The Masterclass by IFCN presentations were created in response to a call from IFCN members societies for more high quality, complimentary, online educational content. The series will provide a new presentation every month from top clinical neurophysiologists around the world, and each will include time for discussion with the lecturer following the presentation.
Providing the best in contemporary clinical neurophysiology education delivered in the most optimal format is the primary educational goal of the IFCN. As such, Masterclass by IFCN will be available complimentary to all registrants.
The next Masterclass by IFCN will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2023 at 6:00 pm (EDT)/ Sunday, April 9, 2023 at 7:00 am (JST)
Professor Yoshikazu Ugawa will present: Quadripluse Stimulation (QPS) in 2023
There are several non-invasive brain stimulation (NBS) methods to induce synaptic plasticity in human brain and spinal cord.
We have developed quadripulse stimulation (QPS), one of patterned repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), from 2007. It must induce robust and stable plasticity as compared with the other methods.
Professor Ugawa will summarize the QPS method, show its superior points to the other methods and possible mechanisms underlying those points.
He will also provide its applications to analyses of normal physiology, pathophysiological studies of neurological disorders, and a treatment application.
Note: Registration for the Masterclass is via Zoom
