Dr. Frohlich's goal is to understand cortical network dynamics and to become a key contributor to the fields of network neuroscience and brain stimulation. He combines electrophysiology, computational modeling, and engineering principles to investigate how cortical networks generate physiological and pathological activity states and how perturbations can be used to modulate these states. Dr. Frohlich aims for a rapid translation of our research into the clinical domain for treatment of patients with psychiatric and neurological disorders.
