Applications may include stroke, movement disorders, depression and substance abuse
Seung-Schik Yoo, Ph.D., MBA, of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, is in search of a non-invasive method to assess region-specific brain functions and to modify and control aberrant brain activities. His recent neuromodulation research indicates that MR-guided focused ultrasound may provide the capabilities he seeks.
During a recent Foundation-sponsored lecture at the University of Virginia, Yoo said the technology could someday be used to perform functional brain mapping and to treat conditions such as stroke, movement disorders, depression and substance abuse.
