Non-invasive Brain Stimulation (NIBS) in Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Volume 264 presents the latest updates on recent techniques used to examine the potential treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders in adults. In this special issue, the book's authors and contributors provide a unique focus on the potential effects of non-invasive brain stimulation. Topics cover a range of reviews, opinions, methodologies, original research articles, and suggestions on how to better translate scientific knowledge into practice. This new release will help guide basic research and the development of therapeutic interventions for children and adolescents who suffer from neurodevelopmental disorders.

About the Serial Volume Editors

Roi Cohen Kadosh

Roi Cohen Kadosh
Roi Cohen Kadosh is a Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Oxford. He received his PhD in Neuropsychology (summa cum laude, direct track) on the mental operations and neuropsychological mechanisms of numerical and magnitude processing under the supervision of Avishai Henik from the Ben-Gurion University in 2006. During this time he also had the opportunity to gain experience with neuroimaging techniques, such as fMRI and ERP under the supervision of David Linden at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research (Frankfurt, Germany), and practiced for one year as clinical neuropsychologist at the Traumatic Brain Injuries Unit, Beit Lowenstein Rehabilitation Center in Israel. During his PhD period he also completed the European Diploma in Cognitive and Brain Sciences (EDCBS, 2003-4). He received funding from several sources including the International Brain Research Organization, and the European Union (Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship) to investigate the neural substrate of numerical representations using brain stimulation and neuroimaging during his postdoctoral training with Vincent Walsh at University College London. He joined EP as a Wellcome RCD Fellow in 2009 where he established the Cohen Kadosh Lab.

Tino Zaehle

Tino Zaehle
Tino Zaehle is a research group leader of the Division of Neuropsychology at the Department of Neurology at the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany. His research focuses on the neurophysiological underpinnings as well as potential clinical applications of neuromodulation methods. He is specifically interested in the direct behavioral and electrophysiological impact of non-invasive brain stimulation as well as in the neuropsychological consequences of deep brain stimulation in neuropsychiatric patients. For this purpose, he uses and advances multimodal imaging techniques. In his work, Dr. Zaehle collaborates with several universities in the EU and US and researchers from all over the world.

Kerstin Krauel

Kerstin Krauel
Kerstin Krauel is an assistant professor at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany and a licensed child and adolescent psychotherapist. In her research, she focuses on how attentional and memory processes are altered in children and adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and aims to identify beneficial learning conditions for this patient group. Within the last years, she established transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) in her group to explore this treatment approach in ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Prof Krauel is currently coordinating investigator in a multi-center clinical trial using optimized multi-channel transcranial direct current stimulation in children and adolescents with ADHD funded by the European Union.
