Penn Brain Science, Translation, Innovation, and Modulation Center


The Penn Brain Science, Translation, Innovation, and Modulation (brainSTIM) Center brings together a team of leading neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and engineers from the University of Pennsylvania who use groundbreaking neuromodulation techniques to research, repair, and enhance human brain function. In order to accomplish this goal, the brainSTIM Center has created a framework for cooperation that cuts across departmental and institutional boundaries. The center promotes intellectually rewarding, productive, and novel scientific collaborations in the field of neuromodulation by leveraging critical skills and resources, creating unique opportunities for growth, innovation, and sustainability for neuromodulation research.


Thank you to our first annual 3-day Intensive TMS Workshop speakers and attendees!


During this workshop we presented hands-on and didactic lectures around the following topics:

  • Principles and mechanisms of TMS
  • Safety 
  • Clinical and research advances in the field
  • TMS targeting and experimental design
  • TMS/fMRI
We will be offering this workshop in the future, but earliest will be next year.
Thank you to all of our participants for a successful workshop!
