Deep Brain Stimulation research from BRL is on the news!

Prof. Howard Chizeck and students of the BioRobotics Lab have developed a method to deliver targeted treatment to people suffering from Essential Tremors using brain signals. They combined electrodes on top of the brain to sense movement in the parts of the body that experience essential tremor, along with a deep brain electrode, to deliver stimulation only when it’s needed.
