First Special Issue on Personalized Brain Stimulation

Brain stimulation, as technology-based intervention, is increasingly being applied to basic neuroscience and clinical practice for neuro-circuitry mapping, biomarker validation and treating brain disorders. For years, converging evidence has accumulated on the clinical utilities of brain stimulation, yet, the great variability in the results limits the application and interpretation at individual level. Owing to the rapid progress in neuroimaging and stimulation modality, neuronavigated brain stimulation demonstrates the possibility of localizing stimulation target, meanwhile, also raises the therapeutic considerations in age-specific populations.

With regard to these concerns, Dr. Lu Hanna and Prof. Lam Chiu Wa from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Prof. Ning Yuping from the Affiliated Brain Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University organized a Special Issue entitled “Toward Personalized Brain Stimulation: Advances and Challenges”, which received eight research articles covering the emerging topics, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), EEG-guided transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation (HD-tDCS). We would like to express our warm thanks to our contributors, including Sun Yat‐Sen University, the University of Hong Kong, Shin Kong Wu Ho‐Su Memorial Hospital, Beijing Normal University, Beijing Tiantan Hospital.
