Towards precision treatment and enhancement with non-invasive brain stimulation
Non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial magnetic or direct current stimulation (TMS, tDCS) offer significant hope for treating neural diseases, and for enhancing cognitive performance in younger and in older people. In this seminar we will look at the claims made for these techniques, and will look at how the techniques may be improved over the coming years, for precision treatment of individual people.
