Methods for the detection of neural signals involve a compromise between invasiveness, spatiotemporal resolution, and the number of neurons or brain regions recorded.

Remote access to tDCS mitigates barriers to treatment such as location, time, transportation, and finances. While only 14% of Americans live in rural communities, they represent nearly 2/3 of primary care health professional shortage areas. Telehealth visits cost patients on average 54% less costly for an office visit. Time and travel are estimated to cost patients about $89 billion a year.

Speakers were presented with different auditory perturbations to both vowels in the word “bedhead” (left panel); one vowel was altered toward the vowel /æ/ (“had”) and the other toward /ɪ/ (“hid”), with the order balanced across participants.

Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by accumulation of amyloid and neurofibrillary tangles, and this pathology can be detected using neuroimaging or fluid biomarkers prior to the development of dementia. The Alzheimer’s disease process also involves neurodegeneration which eventually leads to cognitive decline and dementia, however typical approaches for measuring neurodegeneration (such as T1-weighted imaging), may not be sensitive to neurodegeneration in the asymptomatic disease stage.

There is substantial heterogeneity in the development of depression from adolescence into adulthood. Yet, little is known about the risk factors underlying its various patterns of development. For instance, despite the discovery of genetic variants for depression, these discoveries have not accounted for the high degree of genetic covariation between multiple disorders, nor have they been applied to disambiguate its heterogeneous developmental presentations.
