Visualization of Arteries and Nerves of the Auricular Cymba Conchae

Link – High-Resolution Episcopic Imaging for Visualization of Dermal Arteries and Nerves of the Auricular Cymba Conchae in Humans. Abstract Therapeutic applications of auricular vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) have drawn recent attention. Since the targeted stimulation process and parameters depend on the electrode-tissue interaction, the lack of structural anatomical information on innervation and vascularization of […]

Benchmarking transcranial electrical stimulation finite element models

Link – Benchmarking transcranial electrical stimulation finite element models: a comparison study. Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare field measure differences in simulations of transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) generated by variations in finite element (FE) models due to boundary condition specification, use of tissue compartment smoothing filters, and use of free or structured tetrahedral meshes based on […]

Workflow for simulating transcranial electric stimulation

Link – A flexible workflow for simulating transcranial electric stimulation in healthy and lesioned brains. Abstract Simulating transcranial electric stimulation is actively researched as knowledge about the distribution of the electrical field is decisive for understanding the variability in the elicited stimulation effect. Several software pipelines comprehensively solve this task in an automated manner for […]

Individualized tDCS Dosage from Modeling.

Link – Transcranial Electrical Stimulation Motor Threshold Can Estimate Individualized tDCS Dosage from Reverse-Calculation Electric-Field Modeling. Abstract BACKGROUND: Unique amongst brain stimulation tools, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) currently lacks an easy or widely implemented method for individualizing dosage. OBJECTIVE: We developed a method of reverse-calculating electric-field (E-field) models based on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) […]

Estimates of cortical column orientation improve MEG source inversion.

Link – Estimates of cortical column orientation improve MEG source inversion. Abstract Determining the anatomical source of brain activity non-invasively measured from EEG or MEG sensors is challenging. In order to simplify the source localization problem, many techniques introduce the assumption that current sources lie on the cortical surface. Another common assumption is that this […]
