5th International Brain Stimulation Conference

The 5th International Brain Stimulation Conference, held in Lisbon from February 20th to 22nd, 2023, brought together some of the more prominent minds working in brain stimulation from diverse scientific backgrounds. Embracing an integrative and multidisciplinary approach, the conference provided a fertile ground for researchers, engineers, psychiatrists, cognitive neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, and computational neuroscientists to collaborate and discuss cutting-edge advancements in brain stimulation research. Topics ranged from animal models and brain imaging techniques to novel neuromodulation methods like transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Among the attendees, we could find many members of the Neurotwin consortium, both presenting posters with the latest advances and giving scientific talks.

Maria Guasch-Morgades and Adrià Galan-Gadea represented Neuroelectrics with the "Model-driven tACS in Alzheimer's Disease with personalized hybrid brain models" poster. They presented the latest work done toward personalized whole-brain models that can incorporate Alzheimer’s pathology and the effects of tACS. Such models, which will ultimately culminate in neurotwins, can already combine anatomical information, functional data, and physiological data, creating a comprehensive representation of the brain's complexity.
