Abstract

Non-invasive brain stimulation approaches have been increasingly used to target the prefrontal cortex and to induce activity changes in brain networks. New protocols within the field of neurostimulation suggest a combination of distinct non-invasive brain stimulation techniques that are based on different approaches to maximize required changes in brain activity. However - as the effects from these new protocols derive from studies stimulating the motor cortex - there is insufficient knowledge regarding the biology involved in the combination of different non-invasive brain stimulation targeting the pré-frontal cortex. This is nevertheless crucial to optimize the activity changes in neural areas that are know to play a crucial role in patients that are suffering from a mood disorder.This project consists on two large phase-I, well-controlled studies - to be performed at University of São Paulo (Brazil) and Ghent University (Belgium) - that will investigate brain activity following the proposed innovative non-invasive brain stimulation protocol (application, alone and combined, of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation and theta-burst stimulation). Our findings will not only deep our fundamental understanding of the biology involved in non-invasive brain stimulation of the pré-frontal cortex, but also contribute to the design of further studies in healthy volunteers and therapeutic protocols in patients.
