Brain Stimulation & Mental Health
Recently, electrical spinal cord stimulation has gained increasing attention as a potential therapy to restore function after spinal cord injury (SCI). During this seminar, I will show how biomimetic epidural electrical stimulation (EES) targeting the dorsal roots of lumbosacral spinal segments can immediately restore diverse motor activities such as standing, walking and cycling and boost recovery in participants with severe chronic SCI.
