The MNRU, led by Professor Shapour Jaberzadeh is committed to the rigorous scientific exploration that aims to improve our understanding of brain function and enhancement of physical wellbeing.
To promote scientific use of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques that will lead to new findings in the field of neuromodulation and improvement in neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.
- To investigate the effects of diverse techniques of non-invasive brain stimulation, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) techniques on:
- Brain functions using non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques.
- A systems-level understanding of the cortical substrates underlying behaviours such as pain, movement and cognition.
- Understanding of clinical effects and underlying mechanisms of the neuromodulation.
- To promote education and training of clinical researchers and clinicians in the field of neuromodulation.
- To inspire the next generation of researchers and clinicians in the field of neuromodulation.
To become a world leader in the field of neuromodulation which enables design and development of novel NIBS techniques to promote neurorehabilitation in the neurological and musculoskeletal fields through a multidisciplinary collaborative view with focus on education and training.
