Seth Hays's research focus at the University of Texas at Dallas is enhancing neuroplasticity, or the ability of the brain to change, in order to treat neurological disease. The majority of current studies evaluate the ability of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), a putative targeted plasticity therapy, to improve recovery in models of motor dysfunction
Top 3 Takeaways:
"VNS itself is not a thing unto itself. It's really the combination of VNS with the rehabilitation that's producing the effects that we see"
0:30 Do you want to introduce yourself?
2:15 "This targeted learning neuro-plasticity how does it work?"
3:45 "Is this something that people feel, do they feel some kind of like a tingling?"
5:15 What kind of effects do you see?"
8:00 "What exactly do you use? How do you interface with the nerves?"
13:00 So it's just bulk activation?
14:30 "You were talking about testing these devices and do you want to talk a little bit about this?"
19:00 "What's something that you believe that most people don't"
22:00 "Is there anything that we didn't talk about that you wanted to mention?"
