Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation

The Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Working Group focuses on the use of modern Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation (NIBS) methods such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), deep rTMS (dTMS), and transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) in basic and clinical research of mental disorders. 

In basic research, we use state-of-the-art NIBS methods such as dTMS or high-definition (HD) TES in projects investigating the role of the ACC in inhibitory control and the causal role of the inferior parietal lobe in the constitution of the experience of self and perception of self in motor actions. Current clinical projects are evaluating the efficacy of NIBS in treating depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-covid syndrome, and some symptoms of schizophrenia.
