The field of brain stimulation continues to undergo phenomenal growth.  Brain stimulation methods are rapidly transforming research on brain mechanisms, from the molecular to the behavioral, and offer new approaches to therapeutics for brain disorders. In many ways, the field of brain stimulation represents a paradigm shift, augmenting and sometimes supplanting the dominant psychopharmacological approaches of the past several decades.

Currently, there are single theme meetings around the world that are either technique or profession based or that limit the science of neuromodulation in other ways. This sixth international meeting, organized by Elsevier and sponsored by and integrated with the journal Brain Stimulationopens in new tab/window, continues in the tradition of the prior highly successful meetings – the first meeting was held in Singapore in 2015, then Barcelona in 2017, Vancouver in 2019, Charleston in 2021, and most recently, Lisbon in 2023.

This meeting will continue the integrative multidisciplinary approach of the prior meetings. Basic scientists will attend lectures by engineers and psychiatrists. Cognitive neuroscientists will mingle with neurosurgeons and brain modelling physicists. This fertile cross-disciplinary meeting will provide ample opportunity to discuss the science that is driving advances in this field.

Topics will include:

  • Animal models

  • Basic neuroscience

  • Brain-computer interface

  • Clinical neurological applications

  • Clinical psychiatric applications

  • Closed-loop or responsive stimulation

  • Cognitive and affective neuroscience

  • Combining brain stimulation methods with brain imaging

  • Computer modeling of brain stimulation methods

  • Deep brain stimulation (DBS)

  • EEG-synchronization

  • Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)

  • Focal pharmacology

  • Neuronavigation

  • Neurophysiology

  • Neuroprostheses

  • Neurorehabilitation

  • Novel neuromodulation techniques

  • Plasticity of the nervous system

  • Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS)

  • Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)

  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

  • Transcranial pulsed ultrasound (tPUS)

  • Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS)

Supporting publication

Brain Stimulation is the premier journal for publishing research in the field of neuromodulation. The journal includes a) original articles; b) invited and original reviews or commentaries; c) technology and methodological perspectives (reviews of new devices, description of new methods, etc.); and d) letters to the Editor. Special issues of the journal will be considered based on scientific merit. in new tab/window
