Development of an EEG-fMRI-TMS system for optimal alpha phase synchronized activation of anterior cingulate cortex
- Rostral anterior cingulate cortex (rACC) is an integral part of the depression network.
- rACC activity may predict antidepressant effect.
- Stimulation of left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (lDLPFC) causes a reciprocal change in certain parts of the ACC.
- We hypothesise that improvements in the method of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) delivery to the lDLPFC may produce an antidepressant effect.
