We develop novel, cutting-edge interventions using non-invasive brain stimulation, a medical intervention that can help normalize brain function. Find out more at our Non-invasive Neuromodulation Lab (NNL) webpage.
We also promote the experience and backgrounds of a diverse team of experts for the individual care and development of the optimal intervention for each child.

Examples of Our Engagement
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a painless, non-invasive technique used to stimulate the brain. TMS is already an available treatment for adults with depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The Neuromodulation Core is evaluating the use of TMS as a new treatment for children and teens with conditions like Tourette syndrome, OCD, depression, autism, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Name the TMS Robot Contest
The new TMS Robot at MIDB is one of only a handful in the U.S. and 1 of 40 in the world! The Intervention Core invited the community to celebrate with us by sponsoring a “Name the TMS Robot Contest”. Learn more about the TMS Robot here.
Digital Resource Library for Investigators
We are actively is curating a collection of up-to-date safety and ethics position papers, sharable examples of successful regulatory and applications, and template language for regulatory and funding documents. Please complete an engagement request form for additional details.
Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics and TMS study
Chronic tics are a disabling neuropsychiatric symptom associated with multiple childhood-onset psychiatric disorders, including Tourette Syndrome(TS) and OCD. Dr. Conelea’s team is testing the use ofTMS) to help young people with TS control their tics. Learn more about the experience of a research participant in Dr. Conelea’s CBIT+TMS study!
