Dear colleagues!

Research Center of Neurology warmly welcomes you at the 2nd Moscow International Conference 'Non-invasive brain stmulation and functional brain mapping'.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and direct current stimulation are been actively developed now in experimental studies and are closely integrated with clinical practice. Close conjunction with structural and functional neurovisualization techniques, EEG and molecular genetic approaches to brain research gives us clues for understanding basic principles of nervous system organization, and, in parallel, allows us to modulate its activity.

We currently observe constant growth of interest to non-invasive brain stimulation worldwide that is expressed in rapid increase of the number of relevant publications: from 10 papers in 1989 to almost 2000 in 2017. In 2014 international guidelines on TMS usage in clinical practice were elaborated based on major studies and meta-analyses. We exerted our best efforts to cover the most challenging topics and to invite the most brilliant speakers to discover new perspectives of non-invasive brain stimulation.

This Conference is dedicated to the memory of Alexander Chervyakov (1986 – 2017), the main ideologist of the First and Second Conferences on Non-invasive Brain Stimulation, talented physician and scientist, who made major contribution to the development of functional brain mapping and non-invasive brain stimulation methods such as transcranial magnetic and electrical stimulation in Russia.

We will be glad to see you as listeners and participants at the Conference.
