Our Mission

The Brain Behavior Lab (B2Lab) strives to advance the understanding of brain dynamics underlying cognition, perception, and movement. To do so, we utilize non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) to investigate neural plasticity within brain networks in healthy participants and patient populations.

Our goal is to better understand the neural networks that drive human behavior in order to provide a basis for novel rehabilitative treatments. If you’re interested in getting involved, please consider volunteering to participate in one of our ongoing studies!
