3rd European Conference on Brain Stimulation in Psychiatry

From mechanisms to medicine



The meeting will take place in Lyon, France from 18th to 20th October 2018 


In 1993, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation was proposed for the first time as a therapy for patients with mood disorders. 25 years later, a range of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques are in use worldwide as safe and efficacious means to alleviate symptoms in several psychiatric conditions. Advances in basic science and clinical translational research ar the clinical, cognitive, and neurobiological mechanisms of NIBS action.


The third European Conference on Brain Stimulation in Psychiatry (ECBSP) will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in this field, spanning basic mechanistic research in the laboratory and practical therapeutic application in the clinic. ECBSP aims to promote collaboration between European clinicians and researchers working on advancing brain stimulation in psychiatry.
