Gone for a While, Now I am Back!

Things have been a bit slow on the Neuromod Blog due to life inserting itself between me and my passion, neuromodulation. New job (non-operative back and neck pain specialist for a large medical group), a move and a board exam later, and I am back.
New posts to follow. Stay tuned, this is an exciting time in neuromodulation. New discoveries and new studies are being published all the time, the pace of our understanding is increasing.
I was speaking with two colleagues the other day, one is a neurosurgeon and the other a plastic surgeon. We started to talk about the potential clinical/therapeutic benefits of neuromodulation and the best analogy I could think of was to equate our understanding of the brain and the possibilities for neuromod as something akin to opening a door to a dark room and realizing the room is big, but you are not sure how big. You yell to see how close the back wall is and all you really can tell is that the room is in fact something like a stadium.
