More of the story
Our neurobionics research aims to develop sophisticated bionic devices that can detect abnormal neural activity and deliver an appropriate treatment automatically.
For example, together with clinical partners and other collaborators, we are developing an innovative deep brain stimulation (DBS) system to alleviate the debilitating motor symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor.
Our longer-term aim is to address other challenging neurological and psychiatric conditions for which no other effective therapies are available.
- Adaptive and targeted brain stimulation
- Improved deep brain electrodes
- Optimising DBS for essential tremor
- Disturbances of posture, balance and gait
