Ralph G. DePalma Memorial TBI Clinical Strategies

A Pilot Treatment Study for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Neuroimaging Changes Detected by MEG after Low-Intensity Pulse-based Transcranial Electrical Stimulation

by Mingxiong Huang, PhD
Seminar date: 12/6/2017

Description: We used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate neuronal changes in individuals with mild TBI following a treatment program that involves low-intensity pulses using transcranial electrical stimulation (LIP-tES). Mild TBI participants showed significantly reduced abnormal slow-waves and significant reduction of symptom scores after the treatment. The mechanisms of LIP-tES treatment will be discussed, with an emphasis on LIP-tES's potentiation of the mTBI healing process. Intended audience: anyone interested in treatment of mild TBI in humans and recent discovery of new healing mechanisms in animal studies.
