Dr. Maximilian Wessel: Transcranial temporal interference brain stimulation and neuroplasticity

Deep sitting brain regions, such as the hippocampus or the striatum, have never been successfully and directly modulated noninvasively by means of brain stimulation in an effort to improve behavior. Recently, however, Maximilian Wessel from Würzburg University Hospital improved motor performance of healthy older adults by means of non-invasive electrical temporal interference stimulation to the striatum. He believes that this new noninvasive brain stimulation method can be used to interrogate the role and functioning of deep brain networks in behaviour. In particular, this method has the potential for therapeutic applications. At present, Max Wessel is interested in targeting the striatum, which is a central hub for processing movement, emotions and cognitive functions. Max Wessel is convinced that this new brain stimulation method can be used to develop neurotechnology-based treatments of neuropsychological (dys)functions.

Prof. Dr. Andrew Thomas Gloster: On the road to personalised psychotherapy: Need, challenges, and opportunities

Andrew Gloster has just been appointed full professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Lucerne. He is an expert in the development and implementation of psychological interventions, and he investigates factors leading to therapy success (e.g., non-responsiveness, psychological flexibility). He is frequently using mobile technology and data science approaches.  Andrew Gloster is also a psychotherapist, trainer, and supervisor, and currently president of the international association of contextual behavioral science.
