Algorithm Design and Platform Development for Epidural Spinal Cord Stimulation Optimization

With advances in epidural spinal cord stimulation (eSCS) and its companion streamlined digital optimization software by StimSherpa, Dr. Zixi Zhao's project aims to obtain FDA approval of the optimization software. In the near future, the platform will be marketed and help those with spinal cord injuries by providing neuromodulation based treatments.

 

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Combined with Mindfulness Training as a Multilevel Treatment for Adolescent Depression

Michelle Thai's project aims to improve the ability of neuromodulation to treat depression, which would improve public health by promoting remission, reducing poor outcomes like suicide, and reducing the economic burden of depression.
