Direct Electrical Current Used to Preferentially Inhibit Pain-Transmitting Neurons

Gene Fridman (left) and Yun Guan examine a prototype of a device that delivers direct current safely. Credit: Johns Hopkins Medicine Using computer models and laboratory rats, Johns Hopkins researchers have demonstrated that “direct electrical current” can be delivered to nerves preferentially, blocking pain signals while leaving other sensations undisturbed. The researchers say the experiments […]
