My research interests include the broad area of neuromodulation and the molecular biology of gene control.
Currently, I am exploring research related to transcranial magnetic stimulation. I am conducting some work in navigated TMS and am interested in new indications for TMS such as substance abuse disorder, pain, OCD and dementia. We need to develop better TMS technology and find ways to use neurophysiological markers to stratify patients that could benefit from TMS and to eventually build a close loop TMS system.
In the past, I have been involved with deep brain stimulation research, therapeutic brain infusion and the use of molecules that inhibit RNA expression in neuronal tissue.
I am currently the CEO, of Magstim Inc. a TMS company. I also serve on the Board of the UCLA Brain Mapping Medical Research Organization.
