Research participant, Stefanie interviewed about findings published today in JAMA Neurology.

 

New Publication! September 17, 2018

Recent findings published in JAMA Neurology today, describes how spinal cord epidural stimulation contributes to sustained regulation of blood pressure. For this study, research participants received stimulation using specific configurations selected to target cardiovascular function. Earlier research showed the benefits of scES in controlling cardiovascular function during stimulation, but this data reveals participants’ blood pressure and heart rate remained stabilized between sessions, showing an enduring effect.
