Training is a crucial aspect of NC NM4R's offerings, with a range of sessions from introductory to advanced, designed to teach the basic science and application of neuromodulation as it applies to rehabilitation. Our General Training component is NC NM4R's lineup of didactic workshops, offering a curriculum designed to get you up and running in NM4R with the introductory workshop and then to prepare you to design research, conduct trials, and apply for funding in the advanced workshop. Additionally, our Specialized Training component offers the use of NC NM4R's unique facilities and expertise to learn advanced techniques and conduct research.
The Level 1 workshop is generally offered in the Fall season of each year, and has proven to be a helpful introduction for new researchers as well as a good overview for those more established in the field. The Level 1 workshop lasts one week and covers a range of neuromodulatory techniques, including Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, and Operant Conditioning of EMG-Evoked Potential.
The Level 2 workshops are advanced, week-long, in-depth examinations of specific neuromodulatory techniques and how they may be applied to rehab. Offered in the Spring season, past Level 2 workshops have covered Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, and Operant Conditioning of EMG-Evoked Potential, with offerings on subjects such as Vagal Nerve Stimulation planned for future classes.
