Phantom Head for Testing and Standardizing Transcranial Magnetic and Direct Current Simulation Therapies
Project Principal Investigator/s:
National Science Foundation SBIR grant from High Precision Devices, Inc.
Period of Performance:
07/2016 - 06/2017
Goals and Aims of StudyThis project plans to develop a phantom to test models of current flow with tDCS. Having a better understanding of current flow in the living human brain will likely lead to a variety of new advances in the application of tDCS to the study of human cognition. This could lead in turn to a better understanding of human brain function, and for using tDCS for improved methods of neuroenhancement and treating brain and mental illness.
