We are happy to announce that on Thursday 4.10. we have a workshop on transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and its uses in research and in clinical context. Our main speaker is a pioneer of noninvasive brain stimulation, Risto Ilmoniemi from Aalto University. Tuomas Neuvonen, CEO of Sooma Oy will speak about applying tDCS to treat depression and Aaron Kortteenniemi’s talk will be about safety issues related to tDCS.

Finally, participants get a chance to get their hands (and heads) on the stimulation devices themselves!

The workshop is open for all interested students and researchers. However, please sign up in advance for coffee serving using this link.
