Dunning, Allison, Hess, PhD

Dr. Hess-Dunning’s research interests center around developing multi-functional, locally-responsive neural probes for monitoring and improving brain activity and health through electrophysiology, electrochemical measurements, and drug delivery. Micro- and nano-fabrication processes are developed to integrate into the probes novel or unconventional materials, such as a mechanically-switchable polymer nanocomposite and graphene-based electrodes, to maximize biocompatibility and device…

Implanted Blood Pressure Sensor

Implanted Blood Pressure Sensor for Autonomic Dysreflexia Monitoring/Alarm The program goal is to take advantage of significant advances in technology over the past to address Autonomic dysreflexia (AD); first through development of a fully implanted AD detection and alert (ADDA) system, and ultimately through development of an AD mitigation and treatment system.   About This…

I AM HUMAN

I AM HUMAN I AM HUMAN is a documentary about a quiet revolution defining the future of humanity. As we march down a new evolutionary path, age old questions take on a new twist: Who are we? What might we become? And, perhaps most importantly, are we ready? IAMHUMANfilm.com Cleveland Premiere & Panel Discussion Thursday, January 30,…

Leadership

Dear Friends and Colleagues, The Cleveland Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Center has seen significant progress over the past year and has developed a strong plan for the future in our recent RR & D Center proposal. We are excited that we have received core support for the FES Center for 25 years to continue to…

Understanding Ganglion Organization

Infrared Neuromodulation Reveals a New Understanding of Ganglion Organization This study aims to create new tools that will control autonomic Ganglia and visualize activity within them, leading to a deeper understanding of how they function and radically new treatments for Autonomic Diseases. About This Study The autonomic nervous system controls heart rate, respiration, digestion, and many other visceral functions. Recent studies have shown…

Tools for Deep Brain Stimulation

Augmented Reality Platform for Deep Brain Stimulation The goal of this project is to create holographic visualization tools and surgical targeting models for clinical Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) that better document the anatomical target(s). These tools will be especially useful for DBS surgical education and research investigation.   About This Study Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for the treatment…
