FUNDING: MINECO-FEDER (Spain)

Date: 1/1/2018 – 12/31/2021


The impact of cerebellar tDCS in local and downstream brain circuits: how much is neural activity modulated in the resting state and during sensoriomotor processing?

The goal of this project is to fill this gap in knowledge by using a new device to deliver cerebellar tDCS pulses in awake mice

Completed Projects

Characterization of the neural mechanisms underlying transcranial electrical stimulation effects on awake mice

The main objective of this project is to determine, using electrophysiological, histological and behavioral techniques, the effect of transcranial electric fields on the activity of neurons in the awake animal.
