报告摘要

————————————

Vagus Nerve Stimulation(VNS) and Deep Brain Stimulation(DBS) is usually performed to treat epilepsy with electrodes permanently implanted in patients while the stimulators deliver electrical impulses continuously and independently of any feedback (open-loop stimulation). Conversely, in close-loop neuromodulation, electrical stimulation is delivered as a function of patients’ physiological signals. There is an emerging development of close-loop VNS and DBS in the personalized treatment of epilepsy for this purpose. In this talk, Dr. Yuan Yuan will review the various developments in the use of electrophysiological feedback signals, including EEG, ECG and CAP in close-loop VNS and DBS therapies which might offer substantial clinical benefits for epilepsy patients.
