Brain imaging and brain stimulation have both advanced our understanding of the mechanisms of normal human brain function and the changes associated with brain and mental illness. In addition, brain stimulation has shown early promise for reducing symptoms of brain and mental illness and allows testing hypotheses derived from brain imaging data. The combination of brain imaging and stimulation could lead to many advances in both fields, providing a better understanding of human brain organization, improved treatments for brain and mental illness, and better tests of causal hypotheses of brain function.

The 6th Annual Brain Stimulation and Imaging Meeting (BrainSTIM 2020) focuses on the combination of brain imaging and stimulation. This conference will have keynote lectures by leaders in the fields of brain imaging and stimulation and presentations based on the submitted abstracts. The BrainSTIM 2020 conference will inform and educate all who are interested in these topics, from novices to experts.

Brain stimulation and imaging techniques within the scope of the conference include:

  • Deep brain stimulation (DBS)
  • Direct cortical stimulation (DCS)
  • Transcranial electrical stimulation (tDCS, tACS)
  • Transcranial focused ultrasound stimulation (tFUS)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • Diffuse optical tomography (DOT)
  • Electrocorticography (ECoG)
  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI/fMRI/dMRI)
  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG)
  • Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)
