Neuromodulation

The Neuromodulation Facilities in the Woods Lab contain state-of-the-art transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial electrical stimulation equipment. This includes a Magstim SuperRapid Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation system with BrainSight 2 MRI-guided neuronavigation, Soterix and Neuroconn conventional (1×1) and high-definition (4×1) transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) units, as well as transcranial alternating and random noise stimulation systems. In addition, the lab has an MRI compatible tDCS stimulator in the McKnight Brain Institute Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy (AMRIS) 3T human neuroimaging facility. The lab also contains Soterix tDCS and HD-tDCS Explore software for computational modeling of current density and flow to determine optimal electrode locations for study design and implementation, as well as Simpleware and COMSOL software for custom calculation of current flow computational models. The Woods Lab is also equipped with transcranial near infrared stimulation equipment and an intermittent hypoxia delivery device. To facilitate large-scale clinical and research trials, the Lab maintains access to five clinical testing rooms adjacent to both UF 3T research MRI scanners on the 1st floor of the McKnight Brain Institute with dedicated participant parking as part of the Center for Cognitive Aging and Memory Clinical Translational Research.
