PhD scholarship in MR Imaging of Transcranial Ultrasound Waves
Donor name: DTU
Description:Transcranial Ultrasound Stimulation (TUS) is an emerging non-invasive brain stimulation method that can achieve a highly focused stimulation also of deeper brain areas. By that, it offers unique new prospects for the treatment of neuropsychiatric diseases. Controlling the dose (i.e., the strength and spatial distribution) of the ultrasound waves in the brain is central to ensure that TUS has the desired effects on brain physiology while being safe. However, this is a challenging task because the waves are strongly affected by the human skull, which has complex and uncertain acoustic properties.
