Description

Advanced Vagus Nerve Stimulation - Level 2

This workshop will be mainly practical with particular focus on using VNS in post-stroke rehabilitation (including fine motor skills, speech dysfunction and gait), improving fronto-temporal connection and activity (memory formation and cognition) as seen in dementia and improving locus coeruleus/raphe nuclei activation in chronic pain. Additionally, attendees will learn new ways of stimulating the vagus nerve that do not require electrical stimulation - useful for when treating children.


Main Learning Outcomes

1. Develop and apply a VNS based approach to neuro-rehabilitation for fine motor skills, gait and speech dysfunction.

2. Apply neural manipulation and mobilisation techniques for the vagus nerve and enteric plexus.

3. Develop and apply VNS based brain training to increase activity in the frontal and temporal lobes and improve their connection.

4. Develop and apply VNS based brain training to increase activity in the raphe nuclei and locus coeruleus with respect to chronic pain.
