Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) mediates analgesia by modulating spinal cord circuits. Multiple lines of evidence obtained from animal models suggest that SCS augments inhibition, decreases excitability, and reverses pathological states. This session will cover the latest research describing the effects of SCS on spinal networks
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Discuss advances on the effects of SCS on spinal cord neuron activity.
- Describe how SCS modulates gene expression in neuropathic animal models.
- Describe the effects of SCS on microglia.
- Discuss advances in imaging to assess SCS mechanisms.
- 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
