Frontiers of Non-Invasive Neuromodulation

1:30 PM - 3:00 PM Friday, January 24

This session will present several forms of non-invasive techniques for modulating activity in the nervous system. These techniques will include electrical, magnetic, and optical stimulation modalities. This session will address the feasibility of these approaches in clinical applications and present future directions. This session will cover non-invasive modulation of activity in the vagus nerve and the brain.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify several novel modalities, such as electrical, optical, and magnetic stimulation, for non-invasively treating a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
  • Discuss the feasibility and applicability of these novel forms of stimulation for modulating brain activity.
  • Explain the feasibility and applicability of these novel forms of stimulation for modulating activity in the vagus nerve.
  • Describe future directions for non-invasive brain neuromodulation.
