Neuromodulation and neurocybernetics: translational cognitive neuroscience

Gaining knowledge and developing new capabilities are essential throughout our entire lives. Deterioration of learning and memory processes through neurological and psychiatric disease results in substantial challenges both for individuals and society. Moreover, the capacity to learn and relearn skills is central to rehabilitation, such as following stroke.

The development of interventions, with the potential to assist in strengthening these capabilities through neuromodulation, is a rapidly growing field and includes deep brain and transcranial electrical stimulation (DBS; tES) and neurofeedback through training with a brain–computer interface (BCI). Our central aim is to develop and implement these approaches to modulating and supporting the neural processing underlying learning and memory.

Crucial to the development of these methods is a deeper understanding of the neural circuitry underpinning cognitive processing, enabling the translation of cognitive neuroscience into effective neuromodulation. We therefore also seek to identify neural correlates of learning and memory, whose direct modulation improves these capacities, analyzing brain signals recorded using electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging, as well as intracranial electrophysiological recordings.

Our research aims

We aim to deepen our understanding of how the brain processes information with the goal of translating our findings into new approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of neurological disease. We employ a multimodal approach, including analysis of electroencephalographic (EEG) and magnetoencephalographic (MEG) data, intracranial electrophysiological signals, and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data, as well as of the behavioural, clinical, and electrophysiological effects of deep and transcranial brain stimulation, and application of brain–computer interfaces (BCI).

Modulation of neural processing using electrical brain stimulation provides a means of evaluating the causal role of the neural correlates of cognition as well as of potentially enhancing behavioural performance and treating disease. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a well-established treatment for essential tremor and is also gaining attention as a treatment for pharmacoresistant focal epilepsy. We had the rare opportunity of recording intracranial electrical brain activity from the anterior and dorsomedial thalamic nuclei (ATN; DMTN) from patients receiving ATN-DBS to treat epilepsy. We provided evidence for an active processing role for the ATN in human episodic memory formation. Moreover, the oscillatory power in the theta frequency range predicted whether a memory would be successfully formed for a subsequent event and also predicted neural correlates of memory formation in the ATN and frontal cortex. We also detected interictal epileptiform discharges in the ATN and DMTN, supporting the hypothesis that both are involved in the propagation of focal epileptic activity.

Transcranial electrical brain stimulation has received growing attention in recent years as a means of improving working memory. Both transcranial direct current (TDCS) as well as alternating current stimulation (TACS) have been investigated. Direct comparison of the methods from the literature is challenging due to the diverse study paradigms and parameters. We are directly comparing these approaches keeping as many parameters constant as is possible given the fundamental differences between the methods. We are also examining the effects of applying TDCS in multiple sessions. Moreover, we are currently investigating the effects of modulation of motor sequence learning through TDCS to the cerebellum and the motor cortex and DBS to the ventral-intermediate nucleus of the thalamus, both on behavioural measures and electrophysiological correlates. These studies of motor learning are a part of a project investigating the effects of DBS to treat essential tremor. We are employing high resolution 7T fMRI and 3T structural MRI to establish whether the VIM has separate subregions engaged in motor learning and tremor. In addition, we are investigating the neural correlates of prospective memory and plan to extend this work to establishing whether performance can be modulated using transcranial electrical stimulation.

BCIs enable direct control of external devices using brain activity, with potential application in rehabilitation, when functional connectivity (FC) between the brain and musculature is impaired or absent, such as following stroke. BCI-controlled timing of functional electrical stimulation of arm musculature as a rehabilitation therapy for chronic stroke patients has been shown to improve arm mobility, putatively by facilitating re-establishment of brain–musculature FC. We are currently investigating this approach in the acute and subacute phases post-stroke, at a time when neural plasticity is deemed to be heightened.
