Mo Chen



Dr. Mo Chen is the Manager of the Non-invasive Neuromodulation Laboratory and a Scientist in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota. He obtained his B.S and PhD degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University and finished Postdoctoral research training in the Brain Plasticity Laboratory at 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 disorders, e.g. Focal Dystonia, Spasmodic Dysphonia and Stroke. 3. Using neuromodulation techniques as a treatment to neurological or psychiatric disorders.
