Join us for “Precision transcranial brain stimulation for cognitive and mental health” a keynote presentation by Dr. Ivan Alekseichuk, School of Medicine - Psychiatry, MizzouForward faculty candidate.  Dr. Alekseichuk will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.

Dr. Alekseichuk is a senior research scientist in the Dept of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. He focuses on the translational research of personalized and closed-loop transcranial brain stimulation with concurrent neuroimaging as a therapy for brain disorders. Dr. Alekseichuk completed his postdoctoral training in neuroengineering at the University of Minnesota and his Ph.D. in Systems Neuroscience at the Medical Center of the University of Göttingen, Germany.

 

Brain disorders are increasingly prevalent in modern societies. Non-invasive personalized neuromodulation, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), promises a unique technological approach to brain therapy. Despite their initial success, a major challenge for brain stimulation is the persistent inter- and intra-individual variability of treatment outcomes. This is likely due to currently limited spatiotemporal precision and lack of personalization. Dr. Alekseichuk will discuss the cutting-edge advances in personalizing brain stimulation to the neurophysiological features and states of the brain and their impact for therapeutic interventions in brain disorders.
