Strategies to Personalize Invasive Neurostimulation Therapies Featured

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM CST Saturday, January 16

This session will present strategies and technologies to improve the personalization of invasive clinical neurostimulation technologies. It will focus on the widely-used clinical neurostimulation technologies, spinal cord stimulation (SCS), and deep brain stimulation (DBS). Technologies will include patient-specific computational modeling and functional neuroimaging with the goal to aid neural targeting and parameter optimization.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Identify different technologies used for invasive brain and spinal cord stimulation.
  • Summarize how invasive stimulation can be personalized using computational models.
  • Recognize the use of evoked cortical potentials and other physiologic responses as methods to personalize stimulation.
  • Discuss the use of functional neuroimaging as a method to personalize stimulation.
