Dr Ines Violante

University of Surrey
Lecturer in Neuroscience

Dr Ines Violante is a Lecturer in Neuroscience at the University of Surrey investigating the use of brain stimulation to target the function of large-scale networks that sustain cognitive functions. Her research combines functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) to understand how brain stimulation (TMS, tACS, tDCS) can be used to modulate brain dynamics and behavioural performance. She is interested in how brain oscillations mediate long-range connectivity and particularly how neurostimulation can be used to improve network communication following neurological disorders.

Multimodal brain stimulation in brain injury

Non-invasive electrical stimulation might be a useful tool to improve cognitive function after brain injury. However, it is currently hard to design and select appropriate stimulation protocols. I will present our work combining brain stimulation and MRI to provide meaningful information regarding how brain networks are affected by stimulation. I will discuss the different factors affecting the response to brain stimulation and how these can be overcome to improve efficacy.
