By the end of this event series, the audience participant should be able to:
- Link the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) evoked Functional Magnetic Stimulation (fMRI) brain response of the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex to treatment response in depressed patients.
- Use resting fMRI to guide brain stimulation targeting of the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex for treating depression.
- Identify how interleaved TMS/fMRI can be used to define treatment targets in neuropsychiatric disorders.
- Evaluate the overlap between interleaved TMS/fMRI and resting fMRI measures of brain connectivity.
