Neuromodulation for Brain and Spinal Cord Functional Restoration in Neurological Disorders, November 5, 2021

This workshop will introduce methods for targeted neuromodulation. The intended audience is diverse, with backgrounds ranging from basic science to clinical practice in medicine and rehabilitation. Attendees will participate in an incubator session with 1-slide pitch talks to launch conversation and generate ideas. This exercise will result in the culmination of a white paper and the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to support new, interdisciplinary collaboration.

Live Virtual Course | Wearable Sensors in Rehabilitation: Tracking for the Future, October 26-27, 2021

This course will explore basic principles of wearable sensors that measure biometrics such as muscle health, movement, and vital signs in rehabilitation populations. Learners will review how wearable sensors work, what they measure, and explore clinical applications of wearable sensors that use IMU or EMG features. Participants will discuss approaches to using wearable devices to answer their clinical or research questions with experienced faculty and peers.

NC NM4R Transcranial Focused Ultrasound (tFUS) for Neuromodulation Workshop, October 1, 2020,

What is needed before transcranial focused ultrasound can become a clinical rehabilitation technique?” tFUS is a non-invasive form of neuromodulation with the ability to target deep structures. The use of tFUS is an emerging field of study with questions remaining around the use of tFUS to safely treat neurological and psychological diseases in humans. This online workshop will feature presentations and discussion on the topics of tFUS principles, safety, combined modes of neuromodulation, and the use of tFUS to treat pain and disorders of consciousness.
