Next Generation Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation: A Novel Solution Enabled by Mobile Technology and Big Data | Frohlich | $200,000

Next Generation Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation: A Novel Solution Enabled by Mobile Technology and Big Data Award: $200,000 We know that applying very weak electric currents to the scalp, a process called transcranial current stimulation (TCS), can boost specific rhythmic activity patterns in the brain that are the foundation of cognition and behavior. Dr. Frohlich and his team proposed a mobile brain stimulator that would connect to central database, enabling researchers to study the clinical effects of TCS from a nationwide set of data. This could lead to a major breakthrough on how to treat mentally ill patients using methods that are safe, noninvasive, and effective. Flavio Frohlich, Ph.D. Need/Problem: Psychiatry urgently needs new treatment paradigms that are effective, safe, and affordable. Non-invasive brain stimulation such as transcranial current stimulation has the potential [...]
