Presenting:Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: Physics, Devices, and Modeling

You’re invited to join the Clinical TMS Society for this installment of our Grand Rounds Webinar Series: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: Physics, Devices, and Modeling by speaker Zhi-De Deng, PhD.

Learning objectives: 

  • Review the fundamental physical principles and constraints of TMS
  • Overview existing and novel stimulators and coil designs
  • Discuss electric field modeling of TMS

Date: On-demand

Format: Webinar using Zoom Video Communications

Cost: Members: $25 | Non-members $50

Speaker: Zhi-De Deng, PhD 

Dr. Zhi-De Deng is a Research Fellow at the National Institute of Mental Health  Noninvasive Neuromodulation Unit, and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the  Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of  Medicine. He received the S.B. degree in physics in 2006, S.B. and M.Eng. in electrical engineering and computer science in 2007, with a minor in economics, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received M.Phil. in 2011 and Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 2013, with a graduate minor in neuroscience, from Columbia University. He completed postdoctoral training in 2014 at Duke Psychiatry. His primary research focuses on the development of brain stimulation technology, electromagnetic field modeling and optimization of various neuromodulation modalities. His work on electric field modeling of transcranial magnetic stimulation coils was instrumental not only in understanding of the physics of TMS, but also provided helpful guidance for FDA clearance of various devices. He has received career development award from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and NARSAD Young Investigator Award to develop the next generation seizure therapy. His vision is to transform psychiatry through engineering innovation.
