David Houlden, PhD
Associate Professor, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa

Approved for (1) hour of of ASNM-CEUs and AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM

Members: Complimentary

Learning Objectives

  • Describe anatomy and methods for direct brainstem and spinal stimulation
  • Describe limitations of stimulation and recording techniques during brainstem surgery
  • Demonstrate the utility of brainstem and direct spinal stimulation with case studies
  • Present Rationale and Factors that confound Flash Visual Evoked Potentials (FVEP) recordings

In 1997 David received his PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Toronto. He has been performing intraoperative neurophysiology since 1984 making him one of the pioneers of intraoperative neurophysiology in Canada. For more than 25 years he has continually published in neuroscience journals and has been an invited speaker at national and international meetings. As principle investigator, he has received peer reviewed grants to study intraoperative neurophysiology and traumatic brain injury. In 2008 David became the Founding President of the Canadian Association of Neurophysiological Monitoring and is currently a member of the education committee. David is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa where he is refining methods for visual pathway monitoring and brainstem mapping during surgery.
