PlatoScience Seminar with Professor Alexander Sack

PlatoScience Seminar: Brain State-Dependent Brain Stimulation: Implications for Clinical Practice



PlatoScience Seminar: Brain State-Dependent Brain Stimulation: Implications for Clinical Practice

Welcome to the first PlatoScience Seminar of 2022!

For this online event, we are pleased to welcome Professor Dr Alexander Sack, Professor of Brain Stimulation and Applied Cognitive Neuroscience from Maastricht University as the keynote speaker.

There is an increasing knowledge in the field of brain stimulation, that brain state is a key determining factor in improving response rates and clinical outcomes. Since subthreshold stimulation techniques rely on modulating brain activity, ensuring appropriate patterns of activation is key.

In this seminar, we invite you to discuss what is known about how brain states influence the clinical effects of brain stimulation.

About Professor Dr. Alexander Sack:

Professor Dr. Alexander Sack is an internationally renowned expert in noninvasive brain stimulation, fundamental and applied cognitive neuroscience, and clinical brain research. He studied Psychology and Neuroscience with a Master of Science in Psychology and PhD in Natural Sciences (summa cum laude) from Frankfurt University, Germany.

Prof. Dr. Sack has become one of the world‚Äôs foremost pioneers and influential leaders in brain stimulation research by combining and developing new tools to uncover the brain dynamics underlying human cognition and behavior. He repeatedly made theoretical & methodological breakthroughs, published in the highest-ranking journals (e.g. Science, PNAS, Neuron). He is also Principal Investigator (PI) of the research section ‚ÄúBrain Stimulation and Cognition‚ÄĚ at the Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre.

In 2015, he founded and is currently still director of the Dutch-Flemish Brain Stimulation Foundation, aiming to promote scientific research and collaboration in the field of noninvasive brain stimulation and its translation to clinical practice (e.g. for treating depression)

The event is finished.
