Andre R Brunoni - MD; PhD. Director of the Neuromodulation Service
-Institute of Psychiatry, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. His
research involves the use of non-invasive brain stimulation
techniques, such as TDCS, TMS and "deep" TMS in the treatment of
mental disorders, such as mood disorders, OCD and schizophrenia.
Dr. Brunoni is a very productive and active researcher, with more
than 80 records on Pubmed and several receives grants from
Brazilian and international institutions. Fellowships at Harvard
Medical School (2008 - Felipe Fregni as supervisor) and in Ospedale
Maggiore Policlinico (Milan, Italy; 2009, Alberto Priori as
supervisor), both in non-invasive brain stimulation.
Michael A. Nitsche - MD; LP; PhD. Associate Professor at the department of Clinical Neurophysiology of the Georg-August-University, Goettingen; head of the laboratory of Systemic Neurosciences. He published more than 150 papers in international journals, received grants from institutions such as the German Research Foundation. Member of the editorial board of The Journal of Neuroscience, Clinical Neurophysiology, and Restorative Neurology and Neurosciences. He received the Alois Kornmuller, and Richard-Jung Awards by the German Society of Clinical Neurophysiology, and the GESET Award by the German society of Electrostimulation and Electrotherapy.
Colleen Loo - Professor of Psychiatry at the University of NSW and leads the Brain Stimulation Research Team at the Black Dog Institute in Sydney. Her research is focused on improving treatment approaches in Electroconvulsive Therapy and developing novel physical treatments, particularly for depression. She chaired/co-chaired the Position Statements (clinical guidelines) on ECT and TMS in Australia. She is the first international member to be appointed to the Executive Committee of the International Society for ECT and Neurostimulation. She founded and directs an Advanced/Refresher ECT Course and TMS course in Sydney.
"This is a monograph on the history, evolution, research and applications of Transcranial Direct current and alternating Electrical Stimulation direct and indirect using electrodes. ... The book is very useful for historians and investigators in MEG and ECT research. ... I recommend this book to neurologists, psychiatrists and neurosurgeons." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2016)
