Treating Neurological Conditions with Non-invasive Brain Stimulation

Hosted by Dr. Ed Boyden, MIT


We have developed a new method that lets us focus the effects of electric fields deep inside the brain, without implants or surgery.  What is the path to clinical trials and commercialization, so that this technology might broadly help with neurological and psychiatric disorders?  We will discuss the technology, the potential clinical uses, and then brainstorm about how the technology might be deployed into the world.


Areas of Impact

●      Neurological disorders

●      Psychiatric disorders
