Selective Activation – Animal Experiments

Selective Activation – Animal Experiments

Transcript

Taking Selective Activation, from Rehka Chintalacharuvu’s modeling, onto the next level, animal experiments, Warren Grill began exploring the use of a self-sizing spiral cuff electrode with stimulating contacts spaced around the nerve at 90˚ increments. He developed the animal model, built a measurement device and laid the foundation for studies performed by graduate students who followed him.
