under the supervision of Dr. Greg Appelbaum:
I am interested in applying repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), both for cognitive and clinical applications:
By using fMRI-guided rTMS and electric-field modeling, we are aiming at enhancing working memory performance, a critical cognitive ability largely affected with aging.
I am also investigating the effect of connectivity-based rTMS and state-dependency on amygdala activation. If successful, this project will pave the way for a large-scale study to treat patients with post traumatic disorders.
As the coordinator of the Brain Stimulation Research Center () Workshop, I am organizing monthly meetings to develop our knowledge about brain stimulation by discussing the projects running at the BSRC and the latest research published in the field.
