GW4 Brain Stimulation Workshop
6 March 2013
University of Bath Innovation Centre

The Great Western 4 Brain Stimulation Workshop was held 6 March 2013 at the INNOVATION Centre at Carpenter House, a University of Bath building located in the centre of Bath near the Bath Spa Rail Station.

The goal of the workshop was to initiate and facilitate communication and potential collaboration between groups in the region that share interests in brain stimulation techniques. The Department of Psychology at Bath has received funding recently to acquire transcranial electrical stimulation equipment, hosted in the Proulx Crossmodal Cognition Lab, but available for collaborative use with other interested groups.

The day featured a keynote talk by Roi Cohen Kadosh (Experimental Psychology, Oxford), who discussed transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS). There was also a featured talk by Christopher Allen (Psychology, Cardiff) on transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). There were also representatives from Magstim and Linton Instrumentation (the distributor of Biopac Systems) who demonstrated their equipment and answered questions during breaks and lunch.

Michael Proulx was the primary organizer of the workshop. I would like to thank Jon Brooks (Clinical Research and Imaging Centre, Bristol) for his assistance in organizing the workshop, and the funding provided by the EPSRC and the University of Bath.
