Neurostimulation is revolutionizing medicine. Non-invasive brain stimulation such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) are rapidly maturing into exciting treatment options. At the Carolina Center for Neurostimulation, we are at the forefront of these exciting new developments.
We are part of the Department of Psychiatry at UNC-Chapel Hill in North Carolina. Established in 2017, we are already recruiting research participants for multiple studies, including a ground-breaking study to identify changes in electric activity patterns in sleep in children at risk for autism. Dr. Flavio Frohlich, Associate Professor in Psychiatry at UNC, is the director of the center. He is world-renowned for his work on network neuroscience and rational design of non-invasive brain stimulation to target brain rhythms. His unique background and training puts him at the forefront of the coming revolution of neurotechnology in psychiatry and neurology.
