In the Lab
Dr. Seth Hays: Neuroplasticity and the Wandering Nerve

Dr. Hays manages the Targeted Neuroplasticity Lab at the Texas Biomedical Device Center where his research focuses on treating neurological disease by improving neuroplasticity. His most recent work focuses on rehabilitative training coupled with vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), particularly in short bursts, to improve motor function after stroke.

Tinnitus Relief
A new device may be able to help doctors diagnose concussions on the sidelines of athletic fields. The Texas Biomedical Device Center has developed handheld portable device capable of quickly measuring an individual's visual tracking abilities. The high-tech pair of goggles is called Neurotriage and performs a quick baseline test for athletes and then follow up tests after an impact. Watch the video
