Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: Non-invasive, Non-surgical TMS of Human Brain

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: Non-invasive, non-surgical TMS of human brainIMMEDIATE NEED – TWO UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS

Project Title: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: Non-invasive, Non-surgical TMS of Human Brain

Project Description: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) offer promising non-invasive and non-surgical solutions to diseases and disorders associated with the brain. Magnetic field produced from a TMS coil induces a small current in the neurons and stimulate the brain which help in therapy of many brain disorders and diseases such as depression.

Anticipated Student Tasks and Responsibilities: The student will assist in designing new coils that focus and increase the field strengths and measure the magnetic field at various locations away from the coil.

Appropriate Student Majors or Programs: Electrical Engineering (EE), Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Material Science

Qualifications: Student should have basic electrical background and should be willing to learn magnetic stimulation concepts.

Hours of Work Offered Per Week: Up to 10 hours per week

Undergraduate Research Assistant Position For: Year-round

Paid or Unpaid: Paid

Professor: David C. Jiles
