Berenson-Allen Center's Human Brain Research

Noninvasive Brain Stimulation Research

The Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation was established with the generous support of Helaine B. Allen and Alvin B. Allen, Theodore S. and Cynthia L. Berenson through the Theodore W. and Evelyn G. Berenson Charitable foundation.

We are a world leader in research and development, clinical application, and teaching of noninvasive brain stimulation. We use noninvasive brain stimulation to gain novel insights into the human brain and mind.

Our work has been fundamental in establishing noninvasive brain stimulation as a valuable tool in clinical and fundamental neuroscience, improving the technology and its integration with several brain-imaging methodologies, and helping to create the field of therapeutic noninvasive brain stimulation.

We are committed to providing education and training on the use of noninvasive brain stimulation for both clinical practice and research.

Our clinical program for noninvasive brain stimulation provides treatment for a variety of neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression, schizophrenia, epilepsy, dystonia, Parkinson's disease, chronic pain, epilepsy, autism, and the neurorehabilitation of motor function, cognition, and language after stroke or traumatic brain injury.
