Research Interests
Description: 

Research in the Dmochowski Lab is aimed at developing new techniques for non-invasive brain stimulation.  We are investigating techniques that employ electric currents, near-infrared lasers, and ultrasonic waves to perturb neural activity in a specific and reversible manner. These interventions are coupled with recordings of brain activity using EEG and fMRI in order to understand the effects of the stimulation on the brain. A central challenge in brain stimulation research is that there is an infinite set of possible configurations with which to stimulate.  Moreover, the system being stimulated (i.e., the brain) is dynamic and highly non-linear. Therefore, deriving general principles to guide rational use of brain stimulation is necessary to advance neuromodulation to clinical care. This is the overarching goal of our research.
