Achieving Synergy with Multimodal Brain Stimulation: Electricity Meets Magnetism | Frohlich | $156,613

Achieving Synergy with Multimodal Brain Stimulation: Electricity Meets Magnetism Award: $156,613 Dr. Frohlich’s current exploration of noninvasive brain stimulation began with a Foundation grant in 2012, and continued in 2015 with an additional $200,000 award. The third phase of this project attempts to integrate electrical and magnetic stimulation—two methods often used separately—to target specific trouble spots and improve overall brain function. Flavio Frohlich, Ph.D. Need/Problem: One effective treatment strategies for mental illnesses is to combine medications to achieve maximal therapeutic benefit. In contrast, despite the emergence of multiple, different forms of non-invasive brain stimulation for the treatment of mental illnesses, very little is known about the potential therapeutic synergy of different forms of non-invasive brain stimulation. Grant Summary:  This is the first study of its kind to investigate the targeted combination of [...]
