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 research project is available to PhD, Masters by Research, Honours, Master of Biomedical Science students to join as part of their thesis.
