Our research uses combinations of neuroimaging and brain stimulation to investigate how the brain connects and interacts within itself and how interventions can create positive change to these connections.
Critical translational efforts are geared towards applying the paradigms and methods of neuroscience to develop high-impact clinical tools, identify biomarkers, discover treatment targets, and design.
The scope of our work includes basic, translational and clinical projects focused on circuit neuroscience. Questions include the anatomy and physiology of disease-relevant networks, the investigation of pathophysiological mechanisms at the circuit level (with an emphasis on transdiagnostic processes and the role of plasticity) and the translational development of practical tools to support clinical decision-making (e.g. biomarkers and predictors of response). In addition, we have a strong focus on the discovery of treatment targets that support the development of individualized precision therapeutics, with an emphasis on device-based brain stimulation interventions.
