    Neuromodulation: Diagnosis and Therapy for Brain and Spinal Cord Disorders - Exploring Ethics

    Neuromodulation: Diagnosis and Therapy for Brain and Spinal Cord Disorders - Exploring Ethics

    Researchers are exploring the exciting possibility that electrical stimulation of nerve cells of brain and spinal cord could aid in tumor resections, monitor epilepsy, bypass spinal cord injury to cure paralysis, as well as treat other diseases of the nervous system and beyond. Bioelectronic neuromodulation devices are evolving as the gold standard and are projected to impact the lives of millions of people. At UC San Diego, collaborations across engineering and medicine aim to bring the latest technological advances to patient care. Shadi Dayeh, Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC San Diego, covers the development and clinical translation of UCSD’s multi-thousand channel microelectrode arrays to map the human brain and spinal cord. The talk will provide a perspective on global efforts in neuromodulation devices and summarize lessons learned in the technological, medical, and regulatory fronts.

    Building a Better Helmet: Brainguard

    Building a Better Helmet: Brainguard

    As a neurologist, Robert Knight has seen what happens when the brain crashes around violently inside the skull. And he’s aware of the often tragic consequences. Throughout his 40 years as an academic researcher and medical doctor, the University of California, Berkeley, professor of psychology and neuroscience has known students and friends whose lives and careers were derailed by head injuries from bicycle and car crashes. He’s held in his hands brains destroyed by accidental blows to the head. Not surprisingly, he cringes when he imagines his young grandchildren falling off a bike and hitting their heads. So, Knight invented a better helmet — one with more effective padding to dampen the effects of a direct hit, but more importantly, an innovative outer shell that rotates to absorb twisting forces that today’s helmets don’t protect against.
