Coping with Trauma, Healing PTSD using Biosensor Technologies

Loading Events

Traumatic events alter the body and the brain. Severe intrusive memories are a perpetuating clinical symptom in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In this talk, Dr Nil Gurel of Meta Reality Labs, will discuss a novel, electroceutical intervention that stimulates the vagus nerve non-invasively, with no side effects. Her research has combined noninvasive sensors and signal processing to develop digital biomarkers to guide PTSD treatment. The results were found to be sufficiently compelling by the FDA to accelerate the use of non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) as a treatment for PTSD through the Breakthrough Device Program, which speeds the development of medical devices for the more effective treatment of life-threatening or irreversibly debilitating conditions.
