Seminar


Sponsored by the UCLA Brain Mapping Center Faculty

The focus of these talks is on advancing the use of brain mapping methods in neuroscience with an emphasis on contemporary issues of neuroplasticity, neurodevelopment, and biomarker development in neuropsychiatric disease.

Hosted By: Shantanu Joshi, PhD, Neurology, UCLA

“Computational neurostimulation: engineering better brain stimulation therapies”

Noninvasive electromagnetic brain stimulation techniques are applied routinely to study brain function, as well to treat a growing number of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Biophysical models have made substantial contributions to understanding the spatial and temporal dosing of neuromodulation interventions. These computational models can also guide the development of novel neurostimulation devices. In this presentation, we will discuss advances in computational modeling in brain stimulation, with applications spanning low field magnetic stimulation to next generation seizure therapy.
