Methods and systems for establishing parameters for neural stimulation
WO 2007047854 A3
Abstract
Methods and systems for establishing parameters for neural stimulation are disclosed. A method in accordance with one embodiment includes applying a first stimulus to a first neural population associated with a first neural function, using a first set of stimulation parameters. The method can further include detecting a response to the first stimulus at least proximate to the patient's central nervous system and, based at least in part on the response to the first stimulus and on the first set of stimulation parameters, applying a second stimulus to a second neural population. The second neural population can be associated with a second neural function different than the first neural function and can be stimulated using a second set of stimulation parameters. In a further embodiment, evidence of a neural activity can be detected at the patient's central nervous system, and electromagnetic stimulation of a target neural population at the patient's central nervous system can be automatically triggered, based at least in part on the detected evidence.
