EyeTSS

3D transcranial current stimulation and analysis of neurovascular coupling using retinal vessel analysis

Project description

Why?

Diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and epilepsy are related to changes of electrical brain activity. Electrical stimulation (transcranial current stimulation - TSS) can influence those changes in a positive way, helping the patients.

The exact mechanism of the current stimulation is unknown. Further on, a current stimulation of selected areas of the brain is required for an effective treatment of the patients which is not yet possible.

    What?

    • Development of a therapeutic transcranial current stimulation adapted to the patient and optimized for the particular brain disease.
    • Demonstration of the effectiveness of the new current stimulation in patients.
    • Insuring quality of life by improving mental fitness, e.g. for patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

    How?

    The effects of electrical stimulation in the eye are observed and adapted to the brain.
