Bass Neurosurgery Symposium: The Technologies of Neurorestoration (RP1803B)
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. ON-SITE REGISTRATION WILL BE AVAILABLE
This activity will be focused on new developments in neuromodulation, including brain machine interface devices, non-invasive modulation, and breathroughs in genetics. An emphaisis will be made on restoration of motor funtion after brain or spine injury and on restoration of cognitive function, especially memory. A participant in this activity will be able to describe emerging strategies for treating conditions such as quadriparesis, stroke, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer's disease using neuromodulation.
Neurosurgeons, Physiatrists, Internists, Physical Therapists, Nurses, and other healthcare workers interested in current and upcoming technologies for neurorestoration.
- Identify issues facing memory restoration
- Explain how a motor prosthetic works
- Interpret the data behind VNS for stroke recovery
- Describe the uses of TMS for neural restoration
- Discuss new materials being used to develop brain devices
- Describe gene expression profiles and how it may be used for neuromodulation
