We use non-invasive brain stimulation methods such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to perturb and alter brain function in healthy individuals, and in people with mental health disorders.
One of our key goals is to use brain imaging methods including electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to develop biophysical models of how TMS interacts with cortical and sub-cortical circuits. The outcomes of this work inform new strategies for tailoring brain stimulation to individuals, thereby improving the use of TMS as a research tool and as a clinical treatment for depression and schizophrenia.
