Phantom Head for Testing and Standardizing Transcranial Magnetic and Direct Current Simulation Therapies

Project Principal Investigator/s:
Vincent Clark

Funding Agency:
National Science Foundation SBIR grant from High Precision Devices, Inc.

Amount Awarded:
$35,000

Period of Performance:
07/2016 - 06/2017

Goals and Aims of Study

This 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.
