Developing the next generation of wearable neuromodulation devices for child neuropsychiatric conditions


The pathophysiology of many neuropsychiatric conditions are linked to alterations in the dynamics of cortical-subcortical brain networks and modulation of these networks using deep brain stimulation (DBS) has proven to be highly effective clinically. However, DBS is an invasive surgical procedure and not available to the majority of patients.

Non-invasive brain stimulation offers an attractive alternative to DBS and we have demonstrated that pulse trains of peripheral nerve stimulation can be highly effective in reducing clinical symptoms in a range of brain health conditions. This project will focus on developing the next generation of wearable neuromodulation devices for neuropsychiatric disorders.
