8th Science Factory: TMS–EEG Summer School and Workshop


We are hoping to organize the 8th Science Factory in 2022 if the circumstances allow. We will update the situation in December 2021.


The Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering at Aalto University School of Science will organize the 8th Science Factory: TMS–EEG Summer School and Workshop, in 2022 (detailed dates to be provided later). The event will take place at the Aalto University campus and on the workshop premises outside the campus. You will learn the basics and more in-depth aspects of TMS–EEG methodology. You will also have a great possibility for sharing your ideas and results with fellow researchers.


The course is targeted to students and researchers working with TMS, the emphasis being in TMS–EEG. The participants are chosen based on their applications and level of studies; priority will be given to master, doctoral, and post-doctoral students.

Outline of the workshop

Different kinds of formats of teaching will be used in addition to lectures. The students will work in small groups, each team with its own senior coach. The group members work together on tasks related to the lectures of the other teachers, while the coach works as a mentor. The students are expected to participate actively in the various sessions and events. TMS–EEG devices will be available for demonstrations and hands-on practice.

Each coach will conduct a teaching session on his/her own research area in an interactive manner. During each session, one team and its coach will act as designated opponents, while the remaining students are also expected to participate in the discussion.
