Advances in the field of neuromodulation are increasingly dependent on integrating advanced technologies. During this session, we will explore two exceptional examples, including the advanced integration of robotics and neuromodulation for stroke rehabilitation and using advanced intracranial mapping and analytic techniques to understand how both depression and deep brain stimulation affect brain activity. This session will also highlight a major innovation in restoring movement in spinal cord injury.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe how robotic technology can be used to enhance the efficacy of neuromodulation.
- Recognize the opportunities to use intracranial recording and stimulation to define disease networks and understand mechanisms of neuromodulation.
- Discuss the current state of research and strategies for restoring movement after spinal cord injury.
