Andre Antunes

Position: PhD Student  Unit: Alumni Scheffler

Currently doing:

FEM simulations in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), in order to investigate the role of the electric field (magnitude, orientation, depth) in brain activation;

Development of simNIBS, an automated pipeline for the creation and FEM simulations of realistic brains;

Acceleration of FEM simulations using approximations, to achieve real time visualization of field calculations;

I am also interested in the biological effects of magnetic fields, skull modelling, segmentation of MR images;
