Patents by Inventor Jack L. Lancaster

Jack L. Lancaster has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 11458326
    Abstract: Transcranial magnetic stimulation may be delivered to a subject based on a treatment plan. This treatment plan is generated using connectivity-image guidance to identify one or more optimal locations to stimulate based on network properties. In turn, a cortical column cosine principle may be applied to identify one or more particular subject locations at which to deliver TMS to the subject to the optimal locations.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 14, 2019
    Date of Patent: October 4, 2022
    Assignee: BOARD OF REGENTS, THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS SYSTEM

  • Publication number: 20180271397
    Abstract: A model and method for mapping tissue conductivity. The method of mapping tissue conductivity includes estimating an extra-axonal fraction using T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance images. Longitudinal and transverse flow directions are assigned using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance images.

  • Patent number: 9265965
    Abstract: Disclosed are apparatus and methods for computer-aided, robotic delivery of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) using biologically derived feedback to establish coil position relative to brain functional regions. The apparatus includes a TMS coil mounted to a robotic member. The position of the stimulating coil can be automatically optimized using the TMS-induced bio-responses of various types.
