Each year, University of Florida experts lead the Deep Brain Stimulation Think Tank to continue to develop multidisciplinary collaborations to rapidly advance the field and ultimately improve patient outcomes.

In a recent perspective article in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, Adolfo Ramirez-Zamora, M.D., an associate professor of neurology in the UF College of Medicine, and co-authors from UF and around the world outlined the proceedings of the Seventh Annual DBS Think Tank, held in September 2019.

Topics addressed include:

  • Use and utility of complex neurophysiological signals for development of adaptive neurostimulation to improve clinical outcomes
  • Advancements in recent neuromodulation techniques to treat neuropsychiatric disorders
  • New developments in optogenetics and DBS
  • The use of augmented virtual reality and neuromodulation
  • Commercially available technologies
  • Ethical issues arising in and from research and use of DBS
