Plenary Session II - Targeted by Neuromodulation the Sequelae of Brain Injury Featured

Brain injury has numerous sequelae, including disorders of consciousness, impairments in memory, post-traumatic stress, and other psychological changes. These changes have significant impact not only on the individual, but also on society. Numerous advances have been made in several areas to treat the effects of brain injury, using both invasive and non-invasive stimulation. In this session, we will survey the different modalities (electrical and ultrasound) used to treat the effects of brain injury, including both clinical evidence and the scientific theories underlying and motivating these approaches.
