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 diagnosis and neuroprotection are emerging, based on application of different physical fields for formation of the neuromodulation as well as methods for its visualization. Especially promising is combined application. Participation in this Special Session of scientist, involved in various research directions of diagnosis and neuro-stimulation theory and techniques, will allow formulating new strategies for diagnosis and treatment process, aimed to minimize health risks for each person, based on personalized strategies of prevention and therapy.
