BrainBox Initiative Symposium: Multimodal Brain Stimulation and Imaging
External Event - 16th Jan 2017
Brought to you by Rogue Resolutions, the BrainBox Initiative is a collaboration with academics from leading universities - Professors John Rothwell, Sven Bestmann and Dr Joe Devlin of UCL, Professor Paul Taylor, LMU Munich and Dr Charlotte Stagg, University of Oxford - which provides young neuroscientists with opportunities to grow and develop.
This free symposium, the first event from the BrainBox Initiative, gives an opportunity to find out about the latest multimodal brain stimulation and imaging studies being carried out by young neuroscientists. The presenters will be demonstrating the techniques used as part of their talks and the day finishes with an interactive panel discussion. Topics covered at this event include: TMS with EEG, tACS with EEG, tDCS, neuronavigation, cTMS and computational neurostimulation.
The symposium is a satellite event to the Neuromodulation 2017 conference, however delegates can book for this symposium on its own. Places are FREE to book and numbers are limited to ensure a good interactive learning environment.

It provides opportunities to:
- Get hands-on experience with neuroscience research techniques
- Learn about the latest advances in the field
- Network with other researchers
- Gain recognition from the research community
- Share ideas and instigate new collaborations
- Raise your profile
BrainBox Initiative is a collaboration with key academics in the field, including Professors John Rothwell, Sven Bestmann and Dr Joe Devlin of UCL, Professor Paul Taylor, LMU Munich and Dr Charlotte Stagg, University of Oxford.
The BrainBox Initiative’s programme includes:
- The Research Challenge and Young Investigator Award – annually presented prizes and awards
- The BrainBox Initiative Conference – the first of it’s kind giving prominence to new speakers
- BrainBox Initiative Workshops – a series of intensive, hands-on workshops run with experts from University College London (UCL) and elsewhere.
