Current research

Axel’s methodological research foci are on the modeling of biophysics of transcranial brain stimulation and on combined neurostimulation-neuroimaging approaches. He was among the first to employ finite-element simulations of high spatial resolution to characterize the electric field induced by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), resulting in a novel hypothesis on the stimulation mechanisms of TMS. This work resulted in the first open-source toolbox for high-resolution field calculations in brain stimulation (www.simnibs.org), which is now available in a second strongly improved version. He further has a strong expertise in combining TMS with functional magnetic resonance imaging (both off- and online), with a focus on studying human sensorimotor integration and motor control processes.
