Project: Connecting to the Networks of the Human Brain (ConnectToBrain) €10M
Duration: 2018-

The ConnectToBrain project seeks to radically improve the techniques for brain stimulation in current clinical use. The new methods are based on rapid, algorithm-controlled magnetic stimulation pulses that excite neurons and forge connections across brain regions. The research will explore new therapies for a wide range of neurological conditions—from depression to Parkinson’s disease. The methods for brain stimulation therapy to be developed in the project are expected to save up to a billion euros annually in Europe with considerable cuts to both cost of care and duration of sick leaves.
