Neurochemical modulation

Discover the project


The BBSLab is a research laboratory linked to the Neuropsychology Research Group of the University of Barcelona. In our studies we use non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) procedures, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, as well as cognitive stimulation, to investigate and modulate human cognition. We commonly combine NIBS approaches with neuroimaging data – particularly functional magnetic resonance imaging – which allow us to better understand the links between the induced brain activity changes at the level of brain networks, with the observed cognitive outcomes. Our group has a strong focus in the study of the ageing brain, specifically on the investigation of brain resilience and neuroplasticity mechanisms, allowing some individuals to maintain cognitive performance despite advanced age-related brain changes or evidences of incipient neuropathological conditions.
