Welcome to the Neurolite TMS Training Courses


In recent years non-invasive brain stimulation techniques have drawn a lot of attention. Perhaps most significantly, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), with its growing set of evidence for safety and effectiveness in a number of psychiatric and neurological conditions, has spread out of the traditional research laboratory to become a true clinical tool.

Neurolite, as supplier of non-invasive brain stimulation solutions, see it as part of its mission to offer the medical community high-standard training courses to ensure the best utilization of these technics in daily practice.

Developed in cooperation with some of the country’s most renowned specialists, these courses aim to provide medical professionals with the necessary knowledge to effectively utilize rTMS in relevant cases. Information on the mechanisms of action and the most recent clinical results will be presented and active, hands-on training will allow each participant to use the latest stimulation devices. Interaction is at the core of our training concept.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for future editions of the Neurolite TMS Training Course.

Sincerly yours,

Florent Crépin
