Since 1992, TCNL has been a leader in neuromodulation research, developing and testing new therapies for persons with sensory and neurological disorders using Cranial Nerve-Non-Invasive NeuroModulation (CN-NINM) technology. Our research has resulted in sensory aids for persons with visual and balance disorders, and promising new methods to alleviate symptoms of movement disorders.
With the support of individual donors, private foundations, and government grants and contracts TCNL has developed a multidimensional 10-member research staff with expertise in neuroscience, neurorehabilitation, engineering, electrophysiology, instrumentation, physical therapy, and clinical trials. Supporting this stellar team, along with lab operating expenses, requires nearly $1 million/year, a cost that TCNL, as a “soft-money” lab, must raise.
This year we may not be able to reach this goal. In spite of numerous ongoing fundraising efforts, staff layoffs are expected this year, affecting or eliminating potential projects seeking better treatments for neurological disorders and their many symptoms. TCNL urgently seeks your support.

Please note that as a research lab and not a clinic or health care facility, TCNL does not and cannot charge for participation in research studies. The purpose of our studies is to better understand new treatment methods, not deliver health care. More information
