In this project, we will model brain currents as induced by non-invasive magnetic stimulation (TMS). Individual head tissue properties will be based on high resolution T1 weighted and diffusion weighted images. Conductive properties are associated to the different tissue types, and finally the induced current is computed using Finite Element Modeling, with the B field of a typical TMS coil as input.
Furthermore, we will empirically validate model projections with our concurrent fMRI / TMS setup, and a novel method Electrical Properties Tomography.
This project is funded by the DeNeCor project (EU funded ENIAC consortium)
