Brain Stimulation and Neurophysiology

The Division of Brain Stimulation and Neurophysiology at Duke is a leading program with experts in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), neuromodulatory neuroscience, and other areas. The Brain Stimulation Clinic and Research Program examines technologies that alter brain function using electrical or magnetic fields to stimulate certain areas of the brain. The Divison of Brain Stimulation and Neurophysiology offers clinical services, including electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). For more information on our clinical trials and services for patients, please contact Muriel Llewellyn at or Michael Koval at 919-684-0105 for ECT services 919-681-0603 for TMS services.  

Duke Sleep Clinic (DSC)
The Duke Sleep Clinic is a leader in sleep research and clinical treatments for patients with sleep disorders. Researchers and clinicians in the DSC focus on understanding the functions of normal sleep, in order to understand sleeping disorders and 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.
