The UC San Diego Center for Neuromodulation aims to decipher underlying mechanisms of transcranial magnetic stimulation to enable the translation of these findings into effective treatments for an array of neurocognitive disorders and related illnesses. 

‚ÄčOur mission is to investigate next-generation technologies in rTMS therapy and make them available to physicians and their patients.


Our Mission

The Center for Neuromodulation establishes new frontiers for research in healthcare by interfacing engineering and biomedical sciences to advance rTMS research and uncover the scientific basis of neuromodulation.

Our expert team is dedicated to the investigation, validation, and development of rTMS. We combine innovative clinical therapies with state-of-the-art computation and bioengineering to forge a research approach that advances rTMS research and clinical applications at UCSD and beyond. 

What is rTMS?

The UC San Diego Center for Neuromodulation studies rTMS and other related technologies. rTMS, or repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, is a qEEG-guided technique which uses a low electrical current to modulate the brain's intrinsic activity.
