Principal Investigator: Isabelle Buard, PhD

This study aims to explore the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation, such as transcranial electric stimulation (tES) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), for treating neurological conditions that result from hyperexcitability (excess activity) in different areas of the brain.
