The Non-Invasive Neurostimulation Program is a collaborative effort between the Department of Psychiatry and the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (SCI). We are applying cutting-edge transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) research methods to achieve two major objectives:
- Precision science. Create new knowledge about how the human brain works.
- Personalized treatment. Develop novel, personalized, therapeutic and diagnostic approaches for neuropsychiatric diseases.
These goals will be realized by pursuing multiple activities in parallel:
- Innovation. We are developing advanced modeling technologies to enable new TMS applications that are currently impossible. Individual-specific neuronavigation and spatiotemporally precise stimulation will allow us to test models of human brain function and develop personalized clinical interventions.
- Dissemination. We are creating and sharing intellectual and technical resources so that investigators at the University of Utah and beyond can apply TMS in their research.
- Education. We aim to develop a training program in psychiatric neuromodulation to train the next generation of clinical investigators.
The facility for our program is equipped with a full TMS-EEG set-up and is located in Research Park at the Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI). The facilty is also available for use by all University of Utah investigators.
