Speakers will discuss the science and underpinning of sensing systems as they are used to guide therapy from neuromodulation devices. The use of electrical signals obtained as biomarkers for effective therapy will be discussed. The robustness and reliability of signals obtained from implanted electrodes used as indicators of disease status (such as tremor, seizures, or autonomic changes), or as pathway biomarkers (such as the case for spinal cord stimulation for pain) are new to the field. Much has been published on the potential use of these signals in the feedback control or guidance of neuromodulation implants.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe needed improvements for effective closed loop stimulation.
- Discuss the science behind effective biomarkers of disease state.
- Assess reliability of closed loop neuromodulatory signals.
