SCI Neuromodulation Symposium

Moving Beyond Isolated Systems A whole-body approach to understanding spinal cord
The spinal cord is a signal integration and communication matrix that serves to maintain systemic homeostasis under varying conditions. Spinal cord injury (SCI) perturbs the ability of the spinal cord to maintain homeostasis, which has synergistic and interdependent whole-body consequences.

Neuromodulation has shown the ability to recover levels of homeostasis across many body systems. Rather than viewing the pathophysiology of SCI from an isolated organ-system perspective, this symposium will place the study of SCI in the context of medical and biological “Systems Theory” which emphasizes an integrated whole-body approach to treatment of illness and/or injury.

Moving Beyond Isolated Systems is a unique symposium that will encourage discussions and dialog to expand the focus of the SCI field from isolated organ-system dysfunction to the study of the multi-system, inter-related, consequences of SCI. To understand the current science and evidence for neuromodulation – the science behind it, current research studies, and how neuromodulation can improve locomotor skills, autonomic function, and overall health for persons with spinal cord injury.

Expand your knowledge about SCI treatment and recovery during this unprecedented 3-day symposium. Have access to all sessions focused on the far-reaching effects of spinal cord injury on the whole body, with such topics as:

  • Spinal Cord Injury’s Whole-Body Effect on the Autonomic System
  • Spinal Cord Injury and Metabolic Disease
  • Muscle as an Endocrine Organ
