  • SUMMARY:
    My field of research is computational neuroscience. We build biophysical models of neurons and neuronal networks in the central nervous system. The firing behavior of these models can be altered by different types neurostimulation, e.g., electromagnetic or ultrasonic stimuli. The goal is to find stimulation paradigms and protocols that, to a certain degree, can reverse the pathologic firing behavior caused by neurological diseases such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, we often also perform finite-element simulations of the electromagnetic or ultrasonic field distribution in the brain. The goal is to find the optimal configuration of neurostimulation devices that maximize the field deposition in the brain area of interest.

Emmeric Tanghe is a part-time professor at Ghent University and imec. His field of research is computational neuroscience. His group builds biophysical models of neurons and neuronal networks that are modulated by neurostimulation techniques (electromagnetic, optogenetic, ultrasonic). The goal is to find stimulation paradigms and protocols that, to a certain degree, can reverse the pathologic firing behavior caused by neurological diseases. We collaborate with preclinical research groups for in-vitro and in-vivo validation of our models.
