KIMS Hospitals in association with the NIMHANS, JIPMER and Soterix successfully concluded a workshop on Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS). The two-day workshop brought together hundred practitioners and students across India to learn about cutting edge brain stimulation technique; transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for aiding proper recovery ofpatients suffering from strokes, head injuries, primary brain tumors,depression, pain, insomnia, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia etc.Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive neuromodulation technique that has been used to improve cognitive functions such as memory, language, and attention.

 

 

According to the data journalism website, IndiaSpend, at least 60 million Indians suffer from mental disorders and by 2020, the number is estimated to be 20% — or one in five people suffering from a mental illness.  Alarmingly, the age group of mental health patients is getting younger. Tremendous work pressure and long working hours are posing as a big challenge in front of parents to adequatelyengage with their children. The National Mental Health Survey 2015-16 published by the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bengaluru, estimated that nearly one in seven teenagers growing up in India’s metros could be suffering from mental health disorders.

 

 

“Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) has proven to be a state-of-the-art technique in improving working memory, executive function, and other aspects of cognition only after performing one or a few sessions on patients. It has emerged as the new avenue in the field of neuro rehabilitation and is showing increasing promise as an adjunct therapy to cognitive enhancement protocols. “Said Dr. Ajay kumar Midde KIMS Hospital said, “We are thrilled to have a full house of participants and a seasoned highly experienced team of doctors from NIMHANS, JIPMER and Soterix and KIMS who shared their extensive practical experience and an in-depth learning approach, including interactive lectures, facilitated discussion, demonstrations, hands-on step-by-step exercises and bolstered their understanding on the subject.” He added.
