Surgical Neuromodulation and Brain Mapping Lab

Mission Statement

The Surgical Neuromodulation and Brain Mapping Lab focuses on elucidating the role of the cortical and subcortical brain circuits in mediating reward, motivation and affect. The ultimate goal of the lab is to leverage direct human neuronal recordings to better understand these circuits and to advance neuromodulation for the treatment of disorders such as addiction, depression, anxiety, and pain. The lab utilizes task-based human neuronal recordings both intra- and extra-operatively. In addition to awake brain mapping, the laboratory uses functional and structural neuroimaging techniques such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and fMRI to analyze the connectivity within and between brain structures involved in these disorders.
