Abstract
Therapeutic non-invasive transcranial brain stimulation with previous treatment protocols showed at best moderate effect sizes and large interindividual variability with a substantial proportion of non-responders. A currently intensively discussed approach to address these problems is individualized closed-loop stimulation. ConnectToBrain is a synergy project funded by the European Research Council to develop noninvasive closed-loop therapeutic stimulation of network disorders of the human brain. It consists of three main pillars: (1) development of a multichannel transcranial magnetic stimulation (mTMS) coil array that covers nearly all of the cerebral cortex and enables highly precise electronic control of location, direction, intensity and timing of the induced electrical fields, (2) development of real-time analysis of activity and connectivity in brain networks using electroencephalography (EEG) for instantaneous spatial and temporal control of stimulation (brain state-dependent, closed-loop stimulation)and adaptive optimization of treatment effects by machine learning and (3) translation of these neurotechnological innovations into physiological and clinical studies.
