Electrical Impedance Tomography for neural imaging at the 2022 SPARC iniative meeting in Philadelphia

Prof. David Holder and Nicole Thompson presented the most current results of the research on impedance tomography based functional imaging of neural activity at the SPARC meeting in Philadelphia. The research is part of a standing collaboration between the University College London (UCL), Cyqiq Ltd. and Sciospec. Together we are working towards solutions for functional imaging of neural activity in brain circuits or nerve fascicles. In case of the SPARC initiative project the development targets selective functional stimulation of the vagus nerve, which can be used for the treatment of various deseases, such as Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). During the SPARC initative meeting in Philadelphia Nicole Thompson (UCL) was awarded with the emerging scientist award for her work on "Fascicular Organisation and Neuroanatomy of the Porcine and Human Vagus Nerves: Allowing for Spatially Selective Vagus Nerve Stimulation". Congratulations Nicole, David and the rest of the team!

SPARC - Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions

Providing a scientific and technological foundation for future bioelectronic medicine devices and protocols is the aim of SPARC, an NIH Common Fund supported program.
