More than 500 delegates from across China heard presentations from Chinese and international faculty who represented six countries and four continents. The presentations covered the full breadth of neuromodulation topics: epilepsy, movement disorders, chronic pain, cardiovascular disease, motor recovery after stroke, vegetative state, psychiatric disorders, and multiple disease processes.

As the 1st interim meeting co-chairs have noted, "neuromodulation is a novel discipline of modern medical technology at the center of multiple disciplines". It is rapidly growing across the globe and transects the fields of neurology, cardiology, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, urology and spinal surgery. The increase in practitioners brings hope to many patients who may benefit from these life-altering therapies.
