Laboratory for Brain Network imaging and modulation


 

The Laboratory for Brain Network Imaging and Modulation 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.

The goal of the lab is to develop new treatments for patients with brain disease.  The first step in developing these treatments is identifying a therapeutic target, namely a location in the brain where we can intervene to improve a specific symptom.  To identify these targets, we focus on three primary goals:

  1. Identify and characterize brain networks using maps of brain connectivity
  2. Understand the impact of brain lesions and brain stimulation on brain networks
  3. Use brain networks to guide brain stimulation therapies

To accomplish these goals we rely on a variety of techniques and therapeutic interventions including fMRI (especially resting state functional connectivity), MRI-based diffusion tractography, EEG, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), and deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Teaming up with several copywriters in the area, she formed The Write Stuff, a copywriting service that paired copywriters with the companies that needed their unique offerings. Over the past decade, The Write Stuff covers social media and blog content, white papers, copywriting and so much more!

Who are we?

Michael D. Fox, MD, PhD, is the founding Director of the Center for Brain Circuit Therapeutics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. He is also the inaugural Raymond D. Adams Distinguished Chair of Neurology and the Kaye Family Research Director of Brain Stimulation.

He completed a degree in Electrical Engineering at Ohio State University, an MD and PhD at Washington University in St. Louis, and Neurology Residency and Movement Disorders Fellowship at Mass Gen Brigham. Clinically, he specializes in the use of invasive and noninvasive brain stimulation for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric symptoms.

Dr. Fox’s research focuses on developing new and improved treatments for brain disease by understanding brain circuits and the effects of neuromodulation.  His papers have been cited over 33,000 times and he has won multiple awards, including the inaugural Trailblazer Prize for Clinician Scientists from the NIH, a single award across all medical specialties for advances in translational research.
