Poster 33: Benjamin Heck – Project: Computational Assessment of the Utility and Selectivity of Temporal Interference Stimulation on Neuron Activation / Poster: Temporal Interference Stimulation is Imprecise and Activates Non-Target Neurons

Temporal interference stimulation (TIS) may improve electrotherapy for neurological disorders from the current standard, deep brain stimulation (DBS). TIS may offer non-invasive capabilities and enhanced targeting of specific brain regions. We have performed a computational study and have found TIS to lack non-invasive capabilities and the ability to stimulate unmyelinated neurons at clinically relevant voltages. We have found it to be imprecise as neurons excite from high frequency signals.
