The Laboratory for Cognition and Neural Stimulation is a cognitive neurology laboratory within the Neurology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. Our lab primarily used noninvasive brain stimulation techniques, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to achieve two central aims:
- To investigate the neural bases of human cognition
- The exploration of brain plasticity and its modulation
Our research addresses a variety of topics in cognitive neuroscience, including perceptual-motor interactions, multisensory integration, language, time perception, and decision-making in patients who have experienced brain injury (e.g. stroke) and healthy young adults.
