  7. A Wireless, Implantable Visceral Nerve Sensing and Stimulation Platform with Electrode Impedance Monitoring

    SBC: Micro-Leads, Inc.            Topic: OD

    SIGNIFICANCEThe long term impact of stimulation upon visceral organ function remain unknown in many diseasesas acute tethered experiments are confounded by the influence of anesthesia and abnormal patterns of food intake and sleepAnimal handling stressloss of animals from damage to electrode hardware and connectorsand motion artifacts preclude tethered configurations as a viable alternative for lo ...
