OBJECTIVE Closed-loop deep brain stimulation (DBS) systems have the potential to optimize treatment of movement disorders by enabling automatic adjustment of stimulation parameters based on a feedback signal. Evoked compound action potentials (ECAPs) and local field potentials (LFPs) recorded from the DBS electrode may serve as suitable closed-loop control(More)
Closed-loop deep brain stimulation (DBS) systems offer promise in relieving the clinical burden of stimulus parameter selection and improving treatment outcomes. In such a system, a feedback signal is used to adjust automatically stimulation parameters and optimize the efficacy of stimulation. We explored the feasibility of recording electrically evoked(More)
BACKGROUND Deep brain stimulation (DBS) treats the symptoms of several movement disorders, but optimal selection of stimulation parameters remains a challenge. The evoked compound action potential (ECAP) reflects synchronized neural activation near the DBS lead, and may be useful for feedback control and automatic adjustment of stimulation parameters in(More)
1. Typically, the prices of financial assets are studied over fixed-time intervals such as the case with monthly or daily returns. Modern technology now allows us to consider each transaction that occurred throughout a trading period and the particular instance in time at which it was placed. Statistical analysis of financial assets conducted at this level(More)
The effectiveness of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for chronic pain treatment depends on selection of appropriate stimulation settings, which can be especially challenging following posture change or SCS lead migration. The objective of this work was to investigate the feasibility of using SCS lead impedance for determining the location of a SCS lead and(More)
A recently published computational modeling study of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) predicted that a multiple current source (MCS) system could generate a greater number of central points of stimulation in the dorsal column (DC) than a single current source (1 CS) system. However, the clinical relevance of this finding has not been established. The objective(More)
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is an effective therapy for treating chronic pain. The St. Jude Medical PENTA(TM) paddle lead features a 4 × 5 contact array for achieving broad, selective coverage of dorsal column (DC) fibers. The objective of this work was to evaluate DC activation regions that correspond to dermatomal coverage with use of the PENTA lead in(More)
Closed-loop deep brain stimulation (DBS) systems could provide automatic adjustment of stimulation parameters and improve outcomes in the treatment of Parkinson's disease and essential tremor. The evoked compound action potential (ECAP), generated by activated neurons near the DBS electrode, may provide a suitable feedback control signal for closed-loop(More)
OBJECTIVE Electrical stimulation of the pudendal nerve (PN) is being developed as a means to restore bladder function in persons with spinal cord injury. A single nerve cuff electrode placed on the proximal PN trunk may enable selective stimulation of distinct fascicles to maintain continence or evoke micturition. The objective of this study was to design a(More)
