Novel Applications of Neuromodulation for Stroke Rehabilitation Featured

4:00-5:30 PM Saturday, Jan. 14

Neuromodulation has vast implications for the treatment of various disease states. One such area of study is stroke rehabilitation. Data from well-designed studies appear promising and hopes to provide insight into appropriate target selection and indications. Here we will discuss innovative targeting and effectiveness of various neuromodulation techniques on neurological recovery after stroke.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Discuss current indications for neuromodulation for stroke.
  • Identify the pathophysiology behind various types of neuromodulation techniques and their role in neurological recovery
