Project description

Recent neuro-cognitive research has related mood disorders to a deficit within strategic attentional processes led by a frontocortical-subcortical network. The aim of this project is to explore these prefrontal attentional problems through rTMS and ERP brain researches while applying experimental attentional paradigms. These results prospect a functional relation between cognitive control and clinical indications.
