Key Research Areas:
Oscillations within subcortico-cortical motor loops in health and disease
Decoding circuit dynamics to understand and manipulate function
Closed-loop approaches to the treatment of movement disorders
Non-invasive brain stimulation
We are at the beginning of a therapeutic revolution whereby we can interact with neural dynamics from moment-to-moment as necessary to reverse or ameliorate dysfunctional brain activity. To this end, we must record and interpret brain signals in real-time with sufficient temporal and spatial resolution to give nuanced control. Although electrical brain stimulation is already affording major therapeutic benefits, there is vast scope for improving and extending this to provide adaptive and tailored interventions, and for harnessing recent advances in non-invasive stimulation techniques to deliver multisite manipulation of brain circuits.
