The James Cady Fellowship goes to Dominic Ysidron, a doctoral student in Clinical Psychology in the College of Arts & Sciences.

His project is titled “Effects of transcranial alternating current stimulation on pain and nociception.”

“The use of electric currents to stimulate the human body and brain is not new. However, our project is looking at a novel version called transcranial alternating current stimulation for the purpose of changing pain perception (i.e., reducing pain experience) in humans. The evidence is still limited, but our hope is that this method will serve as a useful clinical intervention for those with chronic pain,” says Ysidron, who was nominated by Dr. Christopher France, professor of psychology.

This fellowship is named after John Cady, an Ohio University professor of history who helped create the first Southeast Asian area of study for universities in America.
