Imperial College London
UK DRI Research Assistant in Translational Systems Neuroscience, Imperial
The foundation programme is focused on the development of non-invasive brain stimulation tools and strategies to impact neurodegenerative diseases via direct modulation of the underlying network activity. Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is used around the world to treat patients with severe movement and affective disorders but the risk from inserting electrodes into the brain limits the therapeutic impact of DBS and makes the exploration of new brain targets difficult. The overarching goal of this post is to help develop the clinical applications of a novel non-invasive DBS technologyApply to centre
