Spinal Cord Injury Symposium 2020: Moving Beyond Isolated Systems - April 6-8, 2020

Course Description: The spinal cord is a signal integration and communication matrix that serves to maintain systemic homeostasis under varying conditions. Spinal cord injury (SCI) perturbs the ability of the spinal cord to maintain homeostasis, which has synergistic and interdependent whole-body consequences. Neuromodulation has shown the ability to recover levels of homeostasis across many body systems. Rather than viewing the pathophysiology of SCI from an isolated organ-system perspective, this meeting will place the study of SCI in the context of medical and biological “Systems Theory” which emphasizes an integrated whole-body approach to treatment of illness and/or injury. Breakthrough Topics: Sessions will focus on the little talked about, far-reaching effects of spinal cord injury on the whole body. Examples include “Spinal Cord Injury’s Whole-Body Effect on the Autonomic System,” “Spinal Cord Injury and Metabolic Disease,” and "Muscle as an Endocrine Organ.” Importantly, the symposium sessions will offer an unprecedented focus on Neuromodulation: the science behind it, current research studies, and how neuromodulation can improve locomotor skills, autonomic function, and overall health for persons with spinal cord injury.
