Join Drs. Eric J. Grigsby, John Parker, and Lawrence Poree for a conversation on closed-loop spinal cord stimulation (SCS).
What are evoked compound action potentials (ECAPs)?
How are they used to create a closed-loop neuromodulation system?
What can continuous monitoring the neural responses tell us about the presence and influence of pharmacological agents?
