Modulating somatosensory function by frequency-adapted transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS)

In this project, we adapt transcranial alternating current stimulation to endogenous somatosensory mu-alpha oscillations and investigate effects on a behavioral (somatosensory perceptual thresholds) and network level (resting- and task-based functional network connectivity by multimodal tACS – fMRI). Major aims of this project are to investigate (i) the function of mu-alpha oscillations by directly interfering with it and (ii) to assess how individually adapted brain stimulation protocols might help to shape both functional and spatial specificity.

In cooperation with Prof. Mathias Müller, Experimental Psychology and Methods, University of Leipzig
