Noninvasive Neuromodulation of a Novel Cerebellar Satiety Circuit in PWS

Funded Year: 2023

Our recent research identified a new brain pathway, the cerebellum-ventral striatum circuit, in regulating appetite and satiation. In the proposed study, we plan to test whether safe, non-invasive modulation of this circuit, using a technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), can impact the function of this circuit and reduce food...
