Altering the enormous complex connectivity and output of the central nervous system is one of the most fascinating development in medical technologies. It harbors the ability to treat and modulate different neurological disorders and diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and even help with drug delivery to treat unreachable areas of brain via opening of the blood brain barrier. Evolution of neuromodulation techniques has been significant in last few years. They have become less invasive and more focused. Newer neuromodulation techniques consist of invasive, minimally invasive and non-invasive technologies. The decision to use one of these technologies depends on the indication and the targeted area within the central or peripheral nervous system. In the last decade technological advances and the urge to minimize the surgical and the long term complications of hardware implantation, have pushed the neurosurgical community to increase the use of non-invasive neuromodulation technics. In this article, we will discuss the different emerging technologies in neuromodulation and the increasing role of non-invasive neuromodulation.
