The COBRE Center for Neuromodulation (CCN) at Butler Hospital includes multidisciplinary clinical neuromodulation research activities, all of which involve brain stimulation and readouts of circuit activity in clinical or clinically-relevant populations. The CCN provides a platform for the exchange of scientific insights and technical skills and mentoring so project leaders can move towards scientific independence. A robust pilot project award program provides support for new proposals and scientists who stand to contribute to a sustainable pipeline of researchers in clinical neuromodulation.

The CCN focuses on neuropsychiatric illness with the guiding principle that for noninvasive brain stimulation to gain clinical efficacy and implementation, it is imperative to better characterize clinically relevant target circuits and mechanisms of action. The CCN includes (1) a Design and Analysis Core (DAC) to support rigorous and innovative experimental design and data analytic strategies; (2) a Neuromodulation and Neuroimaging Core (NNC) to facilitate the acquisition and processing of high-quality data using noninvasive neurostimulation and neuroimaging methods; (3) an Administrative Core to oversee and coordinate activities to propel the development of investigators towards independence. The CCN will identify and promote the success of new neuromodulation scientists through the recruitment of new PLs and through its Pilot Project program, integrating the resources of the DAC and NNC.
