Personalization of brain modulation

There’s plenty to do this week in neuroscientific events. There are several conferences going and together with webinars and seminars. Scientific divulgation does not stop!

Today I joined the following session from the NYC Neuromodulation 2020 Online Conference:

“Utilizing Network Imaging to Personalizing and Optimizing Neuromodulation in Translational Cognitive Neuroscience.”

Starts: Wednesday, April 22nd 2020 | 12 PM (EDT) / 17:00 (GMT+1)
Duration: 1 hour

Session Chair: Roy Hamilton, MD, MS (University of Pennsylvania)

Session speakers: John Medaglia, PhD (Drexel University) and Desmond Oathes, PhD (University of Pennsylvania)

Session Description: Recent years have seen explosive growth in our understanding of the functional organization of the human brain. Much of this expansion derives from advances in the tools, techniques, and concepts used to represent the brain’s complex and dynamic network properties. These developments have, in turn, given rise to advances in the ability to modify brain circuits with ever-increasing precision, making it possible to apply neuromodulation that is specific at the level of individuals. This session will highlight innovations in the personalization of neuromodulation and will present promising data that suggests that these advances in precision may afford greater efficacy in the enhancement of cognition and the treatment of brain disorders.

I got this interesting paper about “Personalizing neuromodulation” by Medaglia et al. 2019 to read and get deeper into the topic.
