Single pulse electrical stimulation for epilepsy monitoring and tuning of DBS therapy
The project is a collaboration with Medtronic (MN, USA), where we will conduct a first-in-man feasibility study of a novel deep brain stimulator for the treatment of epilepsy seizures. The device is a brain implant that can stimulate brain regions and simultaneous record the neural responses. We will use a systematic combination of stimulating and recording to track epileptic activity and regulate abnormal brain activity. The technology will form the basis of a new therapy for epilepsy.
This project is jointly supervised by Dr Dean Freestone, Professor Mark Cook and Professor David Grayden (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering).
This research project is available to PhD students to join as part of their thesis.
