The Symposium on Non-Invasive Neuromodulation of the NAPeN network was created to disseminate the area of knowledge and updates on the clinical practice of evidence-based non-invasive neuromodulation.
Its first edition in 2018, took place at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo and counted on the presence of the pioneers and most renowned researchers on the topic, considering the national and international scenarios, such as Prof. Dr. Manoel Jacobsen Teixeira (USP), Prof. Dr. Daniel Ciampi de Andrade (USP), Prof. Dr. Ricardo Galhardoni (UNICID), Prof. Dr. Abrahão Fontes Baptista (UFABC), Prof. Dr. Kátia Monte-Silva (UFPE), among others. In addition, an important milestone in the history of Brazilian neuromodulation occurred during the event: the creation of the NAPeN Network, which was presented by Profa. Dr. Clarice Tanaka (USP).
The NAPeN Network's vision of the future is to be an instrument of integrated and synergistic action among its members to generate qualified scientific knowledge and technological innovation, which guarantee excellence and safety for the use of neuromodulation in health care. In 2019, the event took place at the Federal University of ABC and highlighted the role of Brazil in international research, being one of the countries that has a major contribution to scientific production in the area of non-invasive neuromodulation worldwide, with studies both in animal models regarding high quality clinical trials.
