Abstract

Stimulation trains of a pulse, square, and sinusoidal wave with the same stimulation frequency/rate do not generate the same amount of potentiation as observed in earlier studies. This might be due to the fact that the power spectral densities are different between the various stimulation waveforms. That is, the stimulation frequency and the actual power spectral distribution of the signal (including harmonics) in the frequency domain are not identical and cannot be interchanged in the discussions of EM elicited neuroplasticity. In this project, we plan to apply precise control of stimulus parameters to synaptic pathways and compare effects of various simulation parameters on central contributions.

Neuroplasticity corresponding to different electrical stimulation waveforms – Preliminaries

Stimulation trains of a pulse, square, and sinusoidal wave with the same stimulation frequency/rate do not generate the same amount of potentiation as observed in earlier studies.
