Ultrasound is an entirely noninvasive method of modulating neural activity. Great strides have recently been made in employing novel stimulation parameters and utilizing pharmacological adjuncts to improve the capabilities of ultrasonic neuromodulation. These tools promise to provide new insights into brain circuitry and new modes of treating neuropsychological diseases.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe two classes of drug useful for uncaging with ultrasound
- Describe one example of how ultrasound can change neural activity
- Explain why noninvasive treatments are needed for epilepsy
- Discuss targets for neuromodulation in disorders of consciousness.
- Accelerating Non-Pain Physician Awareness of the Role of Neuromodulation: A Discussion in Healthcare Delivery Science
- Partnering with our Patients to Optimize Outcomes
- Neuromodulation and Neurosurgical Mentorship and Educational Development
- Controversies in Targeted Drug Delivery
- Plenary Session III: Late-Breaking Clinical Trials
