The seminar will consider evidence from historic and emerging neuroscience methods including lesion-based approaches, neuropsychology, functional neuroimaging, scalp and intracranial electrophysiological recordings (EEG), as well as the emergence of neuromodulation as a therapeutic intervention for treatment-resistant clinical disorders (i.e., Parkinson’s Disease, treatment-resistant depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder).
