About the NIMLab
The Laboratory for Brain Network Imaging and Modulation (NIMLab) is part of the Center for Brain Circuit Therapeutics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Local research partners include the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Deep Brain Stimulation Program at BIDMC.

About The Center for brain circuit therapeutics
The Center for Brain Circuit Therapeutics is a joint initiative across the departments of neurology, psychiatry, neurosurgery, and neuroradiology, all located within the Hale Building for Transformative Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital Neurosciences Center. The goal is to improve treatment for patients with brain disorders by directly targeting the brain circuits responsible for neurological and psychiatric symptoms. The center is multidisciplinary because symptoms of brain disease cross traditional boundaries as does the expertise needed to develop and administer brain circuit therapies. The center offers multiple forms of therapeutic neuromodulation because the same brain circuit can potentially be targeted in different ways. The Center combines research and clinical care to speed up the development of new treatments.
