Neuro-modulation techniques in humans
Metadata[+] Show full item record
During the past two decades noninvasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation and transcranial magnetic stimulation are being increasingly used for the diagnosis and treatment of neuropsychiatric conditions. Animal experiments have formed the framework of preclinical studies used to stimulate cortical neuronal assemblies. This talk presents an overview of these techniques and will seek to facilitate a discussion of how these techniques in combination with functional magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, diffusion tensor imaging of axons, and other methods could be used in parallel in animal and human trials to explore cortical reorganization.
