Dear Colleagues,


It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 1st
Carolina Neurostimulation Conference (CNC) to be held *May 21-23, 2018 in
Chapel Hill, NC, USA*. This is a premier conference for those working to
advance our understanding of dynamics of the brain, body, and behavior,
investigating the response to stimulation, and translating discoveries into
clinical applications. Hosted by the Carolina Center for Neurostimulation
<http://www.carolinaneurostimulation.org/>, CNC serves as a platform for
networking for all researchers and specialists and exchanging ideas about
the latest discoveries and innovations in brain stimulation and clinical
treatments. We have a great lineup of speakers including keynotes from *Dr.
Sarah Lisanby (NIH) *and* Dr. Kaspar Schindler (Inselspital)*. Central
topics for discussion and presentations include TMS, tACS, tDCS, and
methods such as modeling, imaging, analysis, and devices.
