Marco André Hirnstein
Department of Biological and Medical Psychology, University of Bergen

Electrical stimulation has not only become a widely used tool to investigate the functionality of the brain but is also an emerging tool in treatment of various mental and neurological disorders. In my presentation I will aim to give an overview of what methods exist, how they work, how they can be used, and what the limitations are.
