The Brain Stimulation and Neurophysiology Division uses innovative technologies and tools to investigate brain function and improve mental health, clinical services, and educational activities.

Our Programs

Brain Stimulation Clinic and Research Program
The Brain Stimulation Clinic and Research Program examines technologies that alter brain function using electrical or magnetic stimulation. Clinical services, including electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are offered. For more information on our clinical trials and services for patients, please contact Michael Koval at 919-681-0603.

Duke Sleep Clinic (DSC)
The Duke Sleep Clinic is a leader in sleep research and clinical treatments for patients with sleep disorders. The program is dedicated to better understanding the functions of normal sleep, to delineate the mechanisms of sleep disorders, and to develop better treatments for sleep disorders.

Brain Stimulation Engineering Lab (BSEL)
The Brain Stimulation Engineering lab develops new devices and technologies to further the field of brain stimulation.

Noninvasive Neuromodulatory Neuroscience (N3) Lab
The Noninvasive Neuromodulatory Neuroscience Lab uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and other electromagnetic means of altering brain function to investigate working memory, conditioned learning, pain, deception, visual perception, and self-recognition.

Laboratory for Psychiatric Neuroengineering
Our mission is to use engineering approaches to uncover how changes in brain circuits lead to psychiatric illness.The lab also aims to develop new devices to repair brain circuits in individuals suffering from these devastating illnesses.

Perception, Performance, and Psychophysiology Lab (P3)
The P3 lab investigates the psychological and neurophysiological factors that influence human perception and performance.
Neurocognitive Research Laboratory (NRL)
Directed by Dr. Shawn McClintock, the NRL is a state-of-the-art facility for the development and implementation of clinical and translational neurocognitive measures to investigate relationships between neuropsychiatric diseases, neurotherapeutic interventions, and neurocognitive functions.
