Mo Chen

Adjunct Associate Professor


Dr. Mo Chen is the Neuroscience Research Program Lead and a Senior Clinical Scientist of the Research Department at Gillette Children’s. He also serves as the technical consultant to the Non-invasive Neuromodulation Laboratory at the University of Minnesota. He obtained his B.S and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University and finished Postdoctoral research training in the Brain Plasticity Laboratory at the University of Minnesota. Before working at Gillette, he was the Manager of the Non-invasive Neuromodulation Laboratory and a research scientist in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota. His research interests are 1. investigating the mechanism and effectiveness of non-invasive neuromodulation techniques, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), repetitive TMS (rTMS), transcranial current stimulation (tDCS, tACS, tRNS, tPCS), paired associative stimulation (PAS).. etc. 2. Combining neuroimaging (functional magnetic resonance image, fMRI, resting-state fMRI and diffusion tensor imaging, DTI) and neuromodulation techniques to investigate pathophysiology of neurological and psychiatric conditions, e.g. Focal Dystonia, Spasmodic Dysphonia and Stroke. 3. Using neuromodulation techniques as a treatment to neurological or psychiatric conditions, e.g. cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury.
