By Jeffrey E. Arle, Jay L. Shils

Neuromodulation is an rising box that explores using electric, chemical, and mechanical interventions to heal neurological deficits. Such neurostimulation has already proven nice promise with problems and illnesses equivalent to continual ache, epilepsy, and Parkinson’s affliction. this is often the 1st concise reference overlaying all the easy rules of neuromodulation in one reasonable quantity for neuro-residents, fellows, and easy medical practitioners, edited by means of sought after scientific specialists within the field.

This quantity emphasizes crucial observations from all the vital scientific stages eager about any neuromodulation: focusing on, intraoperative evaluation, programming, issues, and trouble avoidance. There are commonalities to all neuromodulation tactics that has to be dropped at the leading edge to shape a cohesive presentation of neuromodulation, and such emphasis will supply readers a extra reliable grounding within the basics had to include this box as a cohesive scientific entity.

  • Chapters supply point-counterpoint remark for various perspectives
  • Appendix distills present directions in effortless, available format
  • Chapters stick to tale of sufferer care, successfully emphasizing normal rules with assisting examples
