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.


Among the leading causes of disability and high mortality are diseases of the central nervous system that are accompanied by cognitive, sensor, motor and autonomic disorders. For treatment of such diseases pharmacological methods are not always in conformity with the contemporary requirements of efficacy and safety of health care. New technologies for neuroprotection, based on application of the physical fields for formation of the neuromodulation processes in the brain structures, are promising. Participation in this Special Session of scientists, involved in development of several research directions of neurostimulation theory and techniques, will allow to formulate new strategies of the treatment process, which will be aimed to minimize health risks for each person, based on personalized strategies of prevention and therapy.

The potential topics of the special session include, but not limited to the following:
- Neurostimulation Medical Device design;
- Rehabilitation process monitoring;
- Neurostimulation for Restoring Active Memory;
- Biomedical signal analysis;
- Modeling of neurostimulation effects;
- Clinical studies.
