FAIM Workshop „Neuronal probes for deep-brain stimulation“

[Talks will be held partially in German]

Implantable electrodes can apply electrical stimulations even to deep-lying structures of the brain, for instance to alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease or movement disorders, or to therapeutically counteract psychiatric disorders.

During the FAIM Workshop “Neuronal probes for deep-brain stimulation”, internationally renowned experts for microsystems and neurotechnology and medicine will give talks under the chairing of IMTEK professors Ulrich Egert and Thomas Stieglitz.

The workshop will provide insight into the current state of technology for both clinically established and novel applications, will explain how modelling can help to investigate therapeutic mechanisms, and how microtechnology is used in the development of new probes and implants.

During breaks, participants and speakers will have the opportunity to exchange ideas.
