Devices in and out of the brain that can stimulate the nervous system through electric current are now being used to treat depression, movement disorders, and chronic pain. Our author, a Stanford School of Medicine clinical associate professor provides insight on the many neuromodulation strategies now available to treat brain injury and the potential further of research to accomplish much more.
FEMALE AND MALE SERVICE MEMBERS AND VETERANS RECOVER FROM CONCUSSION DIFFERENTLY, STUDY FINDS
March 8, 2020
"If we don’t understand the differences in biology and/or symptomology, it could cause a major burden for society going forward. Individual differences must be analyzed through the lens of gender,” said Maheen Mausoof Adamson, DVBIC senior clinical research director and a neuroscientist at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Adamson is one of the lead scientists on the DVBIC-funded study conducted at the Veteran Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System...
WOMEN IN NEUROSURGERY
December 1, 2019
Stanford's Department of Neurosurgery faculty is nearly 25% female, an unprecedented level compared to other Neurosurgery programs around the country, and the world. But there is still much room to improve parity, and to make the path to success in this field less burdensome and stigmatized for women. In this series, women across the Department share their experiences as females in the fields of science and medicine. From what got them hooked on science as children, or motivated them to become doctors, to their determination to overcome the bumps they faced on the road to becoming neurosurgeons, we suspect their stories will resonate with many women, regardless of their chosen profession. We hope that by sharing their stories, we may inspire more young girls to pursue careers in science, and eliminate some of the myths associated with women pursuing one of the most complex and demanding specialties in medicine.
