This session will discuss the latest updates in neuromodulation to restore various aspects of neurological functions after injuries such as trauma, stroke, and spinal cord injury. Engineering and scientific advances as well as recent clinical outcomes will be examined.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify principles of motor recovery and how neuroprosthetics offer promise.
- Describe translational basis of modulating the central nervous system.
- Indicate future needs for restorative neuromodulation to become mainstream.
