The human brain has been an organ of great fascination and concepts such as mind control, telepathic communications and brain-computer interfaces, all of which have fueled many science-fiction stories. How realistic are these concepts? Can we expect them to be realized in our lifetime? Frost & Sullivan’s Technical Insights practice explores the advances made in the nervous system modulation space and presents a snapshot of the current and future applications.
Neuromodulation is the concept of modulating the nervous system – the brain, the spinal cord and the thousands of nerves in the human body. Deep brain stimulation and vagus nerve stimulation have been practiced clinically for many years treating physical, psychiatric and psychological conditions. With an aging population at hand, the probability of age-related mental illnesses is high. Neuromodulation is expected to play a crucial role in this scenario. This webinar will also examine more complex technologies such as brain-computer interfaces, neural prosthesis, bio-neurofeedback and many other convergent and collaborative scenarios impacting both medical and non-medical applications.
Attend this webinar to:
- Learn about emerging neuromodulation technologies
- Identify collaboration opportunities
- Uncover the technology and adoption road-map of neuromodulation
As this presentation will discuss emerging trends and opportunities in multi-disciplinary fields of neuromodulation, this webinar benefits medical device companies, healthcare providers, technology developers in the information technology spaces, sensor companies, universities, clinical and translational research groups, and funding and regulatory agencies.
"Globally, the number of people over 60 years of age is expected to double in the next 30 to 35 years. An aging population brings with it several issues, chief among them, is age-related health concerns," said Frost & Sullivan Technical Insights Research Analyst Bhargav Rajan. "Managing and treating age-related neurodegenerative diseases is the most pressing market driver for research in neuromodulation and neurostimulation. Innovations in sensor technologies, wireless communications, miniature processors, and the growing use of information and communication technologies in therapy are expected to spur innovations in the neuromodulation technology space."
