Russian Federation

Brief Bio
Vladimir S. Kublanov is Doctor of Engineering Sciences, Professor, Head of the Research Engineering Center of High Technologies in Medicine and Biology of the Ural Federal University. He developed the theory and techniques of mobile multifactorial neuroelectrostimulation of the neck nerve formations. V. Kublanov is the author and co-author of more than 300 scientific works, papers and 56 patents. Field of interest is devices, systems and technologies of medical purposes.

Brief Bio
Yuri P. Danilov, PhD, Senior Scientist and Neuroscience Director in Tactile Communication and Neuromudulation Laboratory (TCNL), Kinesiology Department, UW-Madison, USA, is a system neuroscientist with over 40 years’ experience in research on brain functions and the special senses, including vision, taste, hearing and balance. Dr. Danilov is the lead discoverer of the balance retention effect, lead development of the specific training regimens, and continues to identify potential clinical and non-clinical application of neuromodulation and sensory substitution technology.


Nowadays, among the leading causes of the disability and high mortality are the deaseses of the central nervous system that are accomponied by the cognitive, sensor, motor and autonomic disorders.
The most common approach for treatment of such deases is the neoruprotection therapy, which promotes normalisation and strengtening of the physiological activities of the brain tissues. However, in this case pharmocological treatment methods are not always in conformity with the contemprorary requirements of the efficacy and safety of health care in the developed countries. This nonconformity have stimulated the development of new technologies for neuroprotection, based on application of the physical fields for formation of the neuromodulation proceses in the brain structures.
The goal of the special session is to present results of the latest achievements in the development of the systems for neuro-electrostimulation, the approach that implements the posibilities of the neuroplasicity.
