Promoting Recovery in People With Chronic PTSD, Stroke or Spinal Cord Injury by Pairing Therapy With Vagus Nerve Stimulation
The Center for BrainHealth invites scientists to share their scientific study with students and other researchers at the BrainHealth Frontiers Lunch Lectures. The lectures are heavily science focused and are not intended for a lay audience.
Friday, 2/17/2023 at noon
Registration is free. Please Register to attend this in-person and virtual event.
Michael Kilgard, PhD
First developed ten years ago by students and faculty at the Texas Biomedical Device Center, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) in therapy recently passed phase three clinical testing in 108 chronic stroke patients at 15 sites across the U.S. and U.K. In August of 2021, the FDA approved VNS therapy to treat arm impairments in people with chronic ischemic stroke. Dr. Kilgard's talk explores ongoing studies that show VNS can enhance recovery in neurological injury, including spinal cord injury, ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Recovery has been associated with neural plasticity in undamaged networks in the brain and spinal cord.
The host is Sandi Chapman, PhD.
The spring 2023 season will be in person at Center for BrainHealth (lunch provided) and live-streamed. Register free of charge for the season and join us for as many talks as you are able.
