Neurostimulation

Neurostimulation (TMS, tDCS, HD-tDCS)

Body

Our laboratory is currently pursuing multiple studies using various neurostimulation techniques, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and high-definition tDCS (HD-tDCS). These methods of neurostimulation are burgeoning areas of neuroscience research that can each be used to target a specific area of the brain and increase regional neuronal activity. One line of neurostimulation research in our laboratory involves the use of tDCS and HD-tDCS to influence specific areas of cognitive functioning, in order to determine whether this approach can produce long-term changes in individuals with and without brain injury.
