You’re invited to join the Clinical TMS Society for this installment of our Grand Rounds Webinar Series: Neuromodulation for the Traumatized Brain: Modulating Dysfunctional Neural Networks in PTSD featuring Dr. Sandeep Vaishnavi!
In this presentation, Sandeep Vaishnavi, MD, PhD will discuss the neural networks involved in stress and fear responses thought to be dysfunctional in PTSD. He will review nodes in these networks that could be modulated by TMS. He will then review the current state of evidence of TMS for PTSD, including figure-of-8 coil, H-coil, and theta burst studies.
At the end of this presentation participants will be able to:
- describe the neural networks thought to be dysfunctional in PTSD
- explain the strategies used to modulate nodes in these dysfunctional networks
- understand the current state of evidence for use of neuromodulation to improve PTSD symptoms
1 Hour CME Credit available
Cost: Members: $25 | Non-members $50 | Student Members FREE
