ANDREA ANTAL, PhD.
Georg-August-Universitat Gottingen - Germany
Professor Andrea Antal is an extraordinary professor at the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology, University Medical Center Göttingen and at the Institute of Medical Psychology in Magdeburg, Germany. She has nearly 30 years of experience in neurophysiology, with over 20 years of experience in neuroplasticity research and clinical studies. From 2001, she played a key role in the construction and coordination of activities in the transcranial brain stimulation laboratories in Göttingen. The main objective of her research group is to develop and establish new non-invasive brain stimulation methods and protocols to induce physiological changes in the central nervous system, in order to investigate visual perception, cognition and restore maladaptive plasticity in visual and neurodegenerative disorders. Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) and transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS), developed by her group in Göttingen, are relatively new stimulation techniques that influence cortical activity; they allow, due to oscillating stimulation, external interference with neuronal oscillations.
She has published about 250 studies related to transcranial stimulation, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalogram (EEG) and maladaptive plasticity in neurodegenerative diseases, its impact factor is about of 620 (H-Index 55).
