Scientific results of STIPED
STIPED project, non invasive brain stimulation in pediatric neuropsychiatric disorders
We are happy to share with you about the work performed from the beginning of the project, main results achieved, the progress beyond the state of the art, expected results and potential impacts, as presented in the publishable summaries from the periodic Reports in the months 18 and 36 of the project. Thanks to the entire project team for the journey, the lessons learned and the overcome challenges. Together we continue to harvest results to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life for children and young people with ADHD and ASD.

Autism Spectrum Disorder and the innovative therapies - Professor Christine M. Freitag from GU
Professor Christine M. Freitag explains in this video for the DJKJP the Autism Spectrum Disorder and the innovative therapies for the XXXVII Congress of the German Society for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy in Magdeburg which will take place in May 2022.
The general theme of the congress is "Future" and the two Venetian glass lettering on the old lift bridge in the centre of Magdeburg designed by Maurizio Nannucci serve as a guide to this: upstream the blue lettering 'From so far to here' shines and on the other side, facing downstream, the red lettering 'From here much further' shines. This describes very well the way this topic of the future will be approached in the congress.They are expecting the broadest possible participation of all disciplines that come together under the heading of child and adolescent psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosomatics plus X, and hope at the end of the congress to have come one step closer to the topic of a future that can be actively shaped.
"TACS: First simulate – then stimulate" - Prof. Dr. Christoph Herrmann
Dr. Rafal Nowak from Neuroelectrics hosted an amazing webinar with Prof. Dr. Christoph S. Herrmann about “Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation: First simulate – then stimulate".
Technical developments in STIPED
Dr. Miguel Castelo-Branco, Research Director of the Coimbra Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Translational Research, CIBIT, ICNAS, University of Coimbra shares with us in this video (in portuguese) about the STIPED project investigation of an alternative treatment method, based on neurostimulation (tDCS), for chronic pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders, namely in children/adolescents with ASD and ADHD.
STIPED is a strategy based on neurostimulation. This project is dedicated to rehabilitating, from a neuropsychological point of view, neurodevelopmental clinical conditions, namely in terms of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Click on the image to see in video how the home based, remotely-supervised noninvasive transcranial current stimulation therapy system for children with ADHD and ASD works. We aimed to develop a full-featured solution for EEG-tES home treatment. This home solution will allow clinicians to prescribe and schedule a tES protocols to patients/subjects via a web portal. Patients/subjects will be able then, at home, safely take the prescribed tES session and perform EEG recording.
This system has five main components: 1) NECbox, the portable wireless tCS-EEG device that applies the brain stimulation, 2) electrode positioning headset fitted with small electrodes suitable for remotely supervised home and nonclinical environments use,3) tablet with HomeApp: a software that connects with both the Data Platform and the NECbox, actually activating the tCS-EEG session, 4) Data Platform which is a set of cloud services providing the remote access to the different devices at patient/subject homes, and 5) Web Based Portal: where clinicians schedule treatments.
