NeuroSigma is actively engaged in cutting-edge preclinical research and development, as well as groundbreaking Phase I and Phase II clinical trials at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and is currently utilizing two distinct therapy platforms:
Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (TNS) - A proprietary therapy developed at UCLA and exclusively licensed to NeuroSigma.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) – NeuroSigma is supporting the development of new therapies for this platform, which was originally pioneered in France for the treatment of essential tremor and Parkinson's disease.
