WVU addresses addiction crisis with novel ultrasound treatment
On the heels of the country’s deadliest year for drug overdoses, the West Virginia University Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute launched a first-in-the-world clinical trial to investigate the use of focused ultrasound technology to treat those with opioid use disorder.
Brain surgery may combat opioid addiction.
Deep brain stimulation, or DBS, via pacemaker technology may help those battling the addiction, which kills 128 Americans every day.
Wearable tech can spot coronavirus symptoms before you even realize you’re sick. Here’s how.
The RNI is applying its Integrated Neuroscience infrastructure to rapidly deploy an innovative national study to understand the spread of COVID-19, while protecting our health and economy.
Gerod Buckhalter, 33, said he had been unable to remain sober for more than four months since the age of 15, despite a variety of treatments . The RNI used deep brain stimulation in hopes of curing Gerod’s cravings for drugs in the first such procedure performed in the United States.
RNI gives patient hope and a steady hand, to hold those he loves the most
WVU Medicine is the first and only health system in West Virginia and the region using MR-guided focused ultrasound to treat Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s Disease.
The WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute was the first in the world to use focused ultrasound to treat a patient with Alzheimer’s disease.
Gold medalist and Marine Corp. among those benefiting from Human Performance Innovation Lab
The RNI’s Human Performance Innovation Center has created a living laboratory that is helping athletes get stronger cognitively, physically, and emotionally, as well as improving recovery with state-of-the-art technology
The RNI team demonstrated that repetitive use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is successful for in reducing craving for opioids.
As part of an ongoing commitment to battle opioid addiction, the WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute marked a major milestone, enrolling the first patient in a randomized clinical trial that will test the effectiveness of an injectable non-opioid, non-steroid micropellet to treat sciatica.
Integrating all components of neurosciences under one roof
The RNI established a new department, the Department of Neuroradiology. The department’s mission is to advance knowledge of the nervous system through imaging and to use that knowledge for delivering targeting therapies in the head, neck, and spine.
