Controlling epileptic brain networks with computationally optimized weak electric fields

Project description

Advancing the treatment of epilepsy

Epilepsy treatment fails in nearly one third of patients, leaving millions suffering from drug-resistant epileptic episodes. Non-invasive brain transcranial current stimulation (tCS) is emerging as a promising solution, but poor understanding of its short- and long-term effects limits its application. The EU-funded GALVANI project is investigating the impact weak electric fields have on the physiology of neurons and neural networks. The key objective is to understand if these electric pulses can improve the patient-specific epileptogenic network. The project will generate mechanistic insight that will be combined with computational models to develop personalised tCS protocols and prevent epileptic seizures.
