Vitaly Gives Talk on Improving Neuromodulation Techniques at OSHER Center

October 1, 2019

Earlier in Septemer, Vitaly gave a presentation focused on leveraging natural rhythms to improve neuromodulation. He highlighted Respiratory-Gated Aurical Vagal Afferent Nerve Stimulation (RAVANS) that our group has pioneered as an improvement to non invasive vagus nerve stimulation. Stimulating during exhalation enhaces parasympathetic outflow, augmenting the effect of stimulation. Check out his full talk...
