APPLICATION AND CLINICAL USE 

 

Noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) refers to a set of technologies with which to modulate the excitability of the brain via transcranial stimulation. NIBS, methods intend to pass electricity, magnetism or sound through the skull and have specific cortical or subcortical target areas. 

The application field of NIBS methods treating neurological and psychiatric disorders is exponentially increasing. As a consequence, numerous guidelines and safety standards for the use of NIBS have been developed and published by the scientific community. However, clinical research and treatment with NIBS always raises ethical questions for researchers and practitioners.

METHODOLOGY AND PROCEDURE

The aim of this project is therefore to develop a code of conduct for NIBS in collaboration with stakeholders from academia, society, industry and government. This code of conduct should enable researchers to reflect on the impact of their research, enable governments to establish sustainable and EU-wide regulations, and provide industry and other stakeholders with a reliable framework.

To this end, we have take into account as many perspectives as possible and to empower stakeholders to contribute their individual knowledge, wishes and concerns regarding non-invasive brain stimulation. To achieve this, we chose a co-creative approach and worked with design-based methods.
