Modulation of Visual Cortex by Non Invasive Brain Stimulation

Student: Carlos muriel Nieto doval

Supervisor: Matteo Feurra

Faculty: Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience

Educational Programme: Cognitive Sciences and Technologies: From Neuron to Cognition (Master)

Final Grade: 8

Year of Graduation: 2020

On this experiment we aim to study neural plasticity in the context of cortical excitability using neuromodulatory and neuroexcitatory techniques. We use non invasive brain stimulation techniques (NIBS) aiming for the visual effects called phosphenes and using as reference the measurement of its thresholds. For it we focus on the investigation of the primary visual cortex (V1) by using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) aiming to develop a useful neuromodulatory protocol to disentangle the actual controversies of the current literature and to explore potential effects of the manipulation of the visual cortex for future clinical application.
