Focus of research:

In this project we record EEG and intracranial LFPs from patients implanted for DBS treatment of refractory obsessive compulsive disorder, depression or drug-addiction. During the recording sessions, the patients perform a battery of clinical and basic-research psychophysics tests.

AMC themes: Neurological & Psychiatric Disorders
Departments: Psychiatry: Adult Psychiatry
