Electrophysiologic Monitoring and Modulation of Enteric Nervous Systems

Todd Coleman

We highlight recent technological and methodological advances in deploying miniaturized technologies that can monitor the spatial electrophysiologic patterns of the visceral nervous system. As an example, we discuss recent developments of thin, stretchable, wireless biosensor patches that can be embedded within routinely used medical adhesives for recording electrophysiologic patterns of the GI tract. We also showcase recent developments in array signal processing that enable non-invasive tracking, and source localization, of the slow wave patterns associated with the GI tract.
