BRAI2N’s mission is therefore to perform neuroscientific research and translate the results into novel neuromodulation treatments by investigating the common neurophysiological mechanisms clustering groups of pathologies, such as the thalamocortical dysrhythmias and obsessive compulsive spectrum disorders. Another line of research will aim at the development of new neuromodulation techniques for the study and treatment of disorders of consciousness, self-perception and social interactions.
We welcome you to the opening of BRAI2N.
