    FSU Neuromodulation

"We improve the lives of patients by advancing neuromodulation therapies for those who struggle with psychiatric disorders and pain. To address these symptoms of dysphoria from depression, bipolar, anxiety, PTSD or pain, we accelerate the impact of neuromodulation technologies through research, clinical, educational and community outreach activities."

The Neuromodulation Lab strives to help patients and participants succeed by researching non-invasive mental health technology that will help improve symptoms of dysphoria caused by depression, anxiety, PTSD and pain. Our studies primarily focus on the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and virtual reality (VR) as novel therapies for dysphoria. If you would like to learn more about TMS and VR therapies, please visit our Education section. 

Dr. F. Andrew Kozel is a tenured professor in the Florida State University College of Medicine as the Mina Jo Powell Endowed Chair in Neurological Sciences. He is the Director of FSU Neuromodulation, Medical Director of FSU Behavioral Health at Apalachee Center, and the Co-Director of FSU Mood and Anxiety Center of Excellence. His research uses brain imaging and brain stimulation to better understand and treat neuropsychiatric disorders with the focus of improving the lives of patients with these devastating disorders.

Dr. Johnson is the Co-Director of FSU Neuromodulation and Research Faculty member of the FSU College of Medicine, Department of Behavioral Sciences and Social Medicine. His overall career goal is to translate neuroscience and behavioral research into useful therapies. He has worked in areas of non-invasive brain stimulation, neuroimaging, sensory testing and consumer health technology; with applications to mood disorders and pain. Current areas of research include improving access to neuromodulation therapies for mood disorders and pain, through novel stimulation protocols and simple sensory interventions.
