Applied electric fields (EFs) have previously been presented as a potential method of inducing functional recovery after neural trauma. To date, most of this research has focused on the application of a direct current (DC) stimulus to produce the desired EF and induce neuronal growth. We propose that high duty-cycle alternating current (AC) stimulation is(More)
The use of focused ultrasonic waves to modulate neural structures has gained recent interest due to its potential in treating neurological disorders non-invasively. While several papers have focused on the use of ultrasound neuromodulation on peripheral nerves, none of these studies have been performed on the vagus nerve. We present preliminary observations(More)
A computer tool, based on an acoustic transmission line model, was developed for modeling and predicting sound propagation and reflections in cascaded tube segments. This subroutine considered the number of interconnected tubes, their dimensions and wall properties, as well as medium properties to create a network of cascaded transmission line model(More)
