Penn Brain Science, Translation, Innovation, and Modulation Center
The Penn Brain Science, Translation, Innovation, and Modulation (brainSTIM) Center brings together a team of leading neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and engineers from the University of Pennsylvania who use groundbreaking neuromodulation techniques to research, repair, and enhance human brain function. In order to accomplish this goal, the brainSTIM Center has created a framework for cooperation that cuts across departmental and institutional boundaries. The center promotes intellectually rewarding, productive, and novel scientific collaborations in the field of neuromodulation by leveraging critical skills and resources, creating unique opportunities for growth, innovation, and sustainability for neuromodulation research.
Check out the article about brainSTIM Center's Director Roy Hamilton, MD, MS, as he discusses his work on aphasia and transcranial magnetic stimulation profiled in Penn Today and Penn Medicine News.
"The Promise of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation"
The Brain and Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) published an article entitled:
Team Tests Model to Enable More Effective Targeting of Non-Invasive TMS Treatments in Depression
The article highlights the publication by several brainSTIM investigators including Nick Balderston (first author), Desmond Oathes, and Yvette Sheline (senior author).
