Dr. Merhi is our second neuromodulation medicine fellow. As a fresh graduate from a psychiatry residency, he believes neuromodulation is a revolutionary approach to understand the brain’s electrochemical connections. From rodent to human brains, he is involved in multiple projects including basic and clinical research, the most recent ones focused on transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) effects on cognitive improvements and the identification of structural/functional networks that underlie deep brain stimulation (DBS) targets.
