Title (EN) DEVICE AND METHODS FOR NONINVASIVE NEUROMODULATION USING TARGETED TRANSCRANNIAL ELECTRICAL STIMULATION
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉS POUR UNE NEUROMODULATION NON EFFRACTIVE À L'AIDE D'UNE STIMULATION ÉLECTRIQUE CRÂNIENNE CIBLÉE
Abstract:
(EN) A system for transcranial electrical stimulation comprises a processor having instructions of a computer model that can be adjusted to the head subject in response to one or more input parameters. The adjustable model may comprise a plurality of structures that can be adjusted to the head of the subject in response to parameters that can be readily measured, such as head size and head shape. Discrete brain regions can be stimulated with a plurality of electrodes arranged to stimulate the targeted region with decrease stimulation of the non-targeted regions in order to improve subject comfort. In many embodiments the plurality of electrodes comprises a montage of electrodes, and the targeted location is identified on the adjustable model and the number of electrodes, locations and pulse parameters determined in response to the adjustable model. The adjustment can be helpful to align structures of model with structures of the subject.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système, pour une stimulation électrique crânienne, qui comporte un processeur ayant des instructions d'un modèle informatique qui peut être ajusté à la tête d'un sujet en réponse à un ou à plusieurs paramètres d'entrée. Le modèle ajustable peut comporter une pluralité de structures qui peuvent être ajustées à la tête du sujet en réponse aux paramètres qui peuvent être facilement mesurés, tels que la dimension de la tête et la forme de celle-ci. Des régions distinctes du cerveau peuvent être stimulées à l'aide d'une pluralité d'électrodes agencées pour stimuler la région ciblée à l'aide d'une stimulation réduite des régions non ciblées de façon à améliorer le confort du sujet. Dans de nombreux modes de réalisation, la pluralité d'électrodes comportent un montage d'électrodes, l'emplacement ciblé est identifié sur le modèle ajustable et le nombre d'électrodes, d'emplacements et de paramètres d'impulsion est déterminé en réponse au modèle ajustable. L'ajustement peut aider à aligner des structures du modèle sur des structures du sujet.
