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.
