Summary on Grant Application Form
The Neuromod+ network will represent UK research, industry, clinical and patient communities, working together to address the challenge of minimally invasive treatments for brain disorders. Increasingly, people suffer from debilitating and intractable neurological conditions, including neurodegenerative diseases and mental health disorders. Neurotechnology is playing an increasingly important part in solving these problems, leading to recent bioelectronic treatments for depression and dementia. However, the invasiveness of existing approaches limits their overall impact. Neuromod+ will bring together neurotechnology stakeholders to focus on the co-creation of next generation, minimally invasive brain stimulation technologies. The network will focus on transformative research, new collaborations, and facilitating responsible innovation, partnering with bioethicists and policy makers. As broadening the accessibility of brain modification technology my lead to unintended consequences, considering the ethical and societal implications of these technological development is of the utmost importance, and thus we will build in bioethics research as a core network activity. The activities of NEUROMOD+ will have global impact, consolidating the growing role of UK neurotechnology sector.
