Simultaneous magnetic brain stimulation and measurement

Project description

A novel method for unveiling brain connectivity

Cognitive neuroscience and the study of brain disorders are two fields that require the understanding of the connectivity of brain regions. To determine such a functional connection, one must stimulate one brain region and measure the response from the other. Current approaches, however, suffer from low resolution or cannot deliver both stimulation and measurement functions at the same time. To address this issue, the EU-funded STIMUSURE project will combine magnetoencephalography with transcranial magnetic stimulation, a technique traditionally used to stimulate nerve cells in the region of the brain involved in mood control and depression.
