Many studies have been devoted to the development of stimulation techniques counteracting excessive neuronal synchrony. In order to target the underlying cause of strong synchrony, we present a novel approach: decoupling stimulation. Analyzing the decoupling potential of different stimulation patterns, we present a random reset stimulation algorithm which induces parameter-robust long-lasting desynchronization that persists after cessation of stimulation.

In a computational study we combined auditory filter theory and acoustic Coordinated Reset (CR) neuromodulation technology and introduced equivalent rectangular filter-based acoustic CR neuromodulation. This method was designed to specifically counteract abnormal neuronal synchronization, e.g., in patients with chronic subjective tinnitus.

In a computational study we introduce a novel type of adaptive deep brain stimulation: adaptive pulsatile linear delayed feedback stimulation. This stimulation method was designed to specifically counteract abnormal neuronal synchronization as found in a number of brain disorders, e.g. Parkinson’s disease.

Vibrotactile Stimulation Treatment for Parkinson's Disease

Stanford is testing non-invasive treatments for Parkinson's Disease and Stroke. One of the methods being tested is a glove that administers weak non-painful vibratory stimuli through to the patient's fingers. In this video, we show one patient's experience with this experimental therapy.
