Transcranial Pulse Stimulation: A novel non-invasive brain stimulation technology for cognitive and motor rehabilitation

Session outline

Transcranial pulse stimulation (TPS) is a novel noninvasive technique for navigated neuromodulation. It uses repetitive, single, ultrashort pulses in the ultrasound frequency range in order to stimulate the brain. There is growing scientific evidence on the safety and benefit of TPS on global cognition, executive function and motor control.   Potential biologic responses include the production of endothelial nitric oxide, which improves blood flow and promotes vasodilation, as well as the production of VEGF for neoangiogenesis. Reduction of the inflammatory process may be related to reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines. No major adverse effects have been described. Rare adverse events include transitory painless pressure sensations, pain, headache, nausea and drowsiness.
