Masterclass by IFCN – TMS Measures of Corticospinal and Motor Cortical Excitability

Dear NVKNF Members,

It is now time to mark your calendar and register for our next Masterclass by IFCN on Saturday 17 April 2021 at 9:00 AM EST (3:00 PM CET). Professor Ulf Ziemann will present TMS Measures of Corticospinal and Motor Cortical Excitability.

This IFCN Masterclass will provide an overview on how transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can be employed to measure corticospinal and motor cortical excitability. The most commonly used single-pulse and paired-pulse TMS measures will be presented, including their underlying neurophysiology. Moreover, clinical examples of abnormalities of these measures will be demonstrated to explain their clinical utility.

The Masterclass by IFCN presentations were created in response to a call from IFCN member societies for more high quality, complimentary, online educational content. The series will provide a new presentation every month from top clinical neurophysiologists around the world, and each will include time for discussion with the lecturer following the presentation.

Providing the best in contemporary clinical neurophysiology education delivered in the most optimal format is the primary educational goal of the IFCN.  As such, Masterclass by IFCN is available complimentary to all registrants. Our previous lectures can be viewed on our website if you were not able to join us live.

Registration is now open. The Masterclass by IFCN series have been organized on, a very easy-to-use webinar application. Please allow yourself 5 – 10 minutes to get set up before the start of the webinar.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday 17 April 2021 at 9:00 AM EST / 3:00 PM CET.

Professor Walter Paulus
IFCN President
