Non-Invasive Acupoint Stimulation May be a New Bioelectronics Approach to Crohn’s Disease

International Neuromodulation Society

U.S. and Chinese researchers have begun a controlled clinical trial in Crohn's disease using surface electrodes daily to stimulate an acupuncture point on the stomach meridian that was shown to reduce vagal imbalance in preclinical studies. Restoring vagal balance is known to reduce intestinal inflammation.

U.S. Space Program Researchers Develop Potential Nano-Tools for Deep Brain Stimulation

International Neuromodulation Society

The ability of a carbon nanofiber pad to detect changing neurotransmitter concentrations was demonstrated in a proof-of-principle collaboration between engineers and neurosurgeons at NASA Ames Research Center and the Mayo Clinic. The active area was one-tenth the size of current deep-brain-stimulation electrical contacts.
