Deep brain stimulation: State of the art and developments (Prof. Dr. Joachim Krauss)

Prof. Dr. Joachim Krauss

Deep brain stimulation is now an established therapeutic procedure that has found a firm place in the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and various forms of dystonia. The method is also used for psychiatric disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, neuropathic pain syndromes and certain forms of epilepsy. Further indications are the subject of intensive research. In recent years, there have been significant advances in pacemaker technology and further technical developments. Of particular future interest is the introduction of closed-loop methods using artificial intelligence. The first steps here are very promising.
