Mild TBI Diagnosis & Management Strategies

Mild TBI Diagnosis & Management Strategies

A Pilot Treatment Study for Mild TBI

By Mingxiong Huang, PhD
Seminar date: 12/6/2017

We used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate neuronal changes in individuals with mild TBI following a treatment program that involves low-intensity pulses using transcranial electrical stimulation (LIP-tES). Mild TBI participants showed significantly reduced abnormal slow-waves and significant reduction of symptom scores after the treatment. The mechanisms of LIP-tES treatment will be discussed, with an emphasis on LIP-tES’s potentiation of the mild TBI healing process.

Intended audience: anyone interested in treatment of mild TBI in humans and recent discovery of new healing mechanisms in animal studies.

Topics covered in mTBI Treatment Study Video

  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG), MEG slow-wave imaging (delta-waves), and the detection of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
  • Potential healing mechanisms associated with delta-waves
  • Different models for transcranial electrical stimulation
  • A Pilot Treatment Study for mTBI: MEG changes after low-intensity pulse-based transcranial electrical stimulation.

Video Summary: MEG to Assess the mTBI Treatment with Transcranial Electrical Stimulation

  • IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback(Low-intensity pulse-based transcranial electrical stimulation) potentiates slow-wave initially.
  • IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback eventually brought down the abnormal slow-wave in mTBI after the subjects finished the treatment.
  • IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback treatment also reduced the total mTBI symptom score.
  • Reduction in total mTBI symptom score correlates with reduction in total MEG slow-wave generation.
  • Self-report clinically: 5 participants felt substantially better, 1 felt about the same.
