  9. Clinical Trial: Effects of epidural and transcutaneous spinal stimulation

    Investigators are recruiting individuals with MS for a research study to compare the effects of epidural (invasive) and transcutaneous (non-invasive) spinal stimulation approaches to improve mobility. Participants will first undergo up to 3 experimental sessions with transcuta...
  10. Clinical Trial: Tai Chi and Mindfulness Training
