In the meeting where many esteemed scientists around the world attended, Prof. Nevzat Tarhan made his presentation titled “Theta Burst Stimulation as a Neuromodulation Tool”. In his presentation, Tarhan shared study examples on using TMU in psychiatry, neuromodulation techniques, ECT-TMU comparison and examples on the current theta burst studies in brain stimulation with TMU in future treatment algorithms and results of these applications.

At the meeting, which was also followed by SBMT TV, Tarhan made evaluations to TV in the context of the studies of the brain mapping association and its new applications in the field of neuroscience, brain computer interfaces and intelligent prediction models and the strong research network provided by SBMT.

Prof. Nesrin Dilbaz from NPİSTANBUL Hospital, who is a member of the research team, shared the results of deep TMU practices and studies in the treatment of attention deficit and addiction in her presentation titled "Deep TMS in treating ADHD and Addiction".

Successively, Prof. Şermin Kesebir with the presentation titled "A Predictive Variable for Neuromodulation: EEG", Prof. Barış Metin with the presentation titled "EEG and MRI Biomarkers in Neuropsychiatry", 

Assoc. Prof. Cemal Onur Noyan with the presentation titled "Neuromodulation Applications for Anxiety Disorders", ve "TMS Treatment of OCD" and

Assoc. Prof. Türker Ergüzel with the presentation titled "CNN Based Neuromodulation Treatment Response Prediction" shared their foresights on artificial intelligence supported illness classification and treatment result.
