Public Lecture, Monday, June 16th, 7 PM at Kane Hall 130

The Brain on Circuit Training: Finding and Fixing Misfiring Neural Circuitry

A presentation by Dr. Andres Lozano with an interactive discussion to follow, moderated by David Heil.

Deep brain stimulation is used to deliver electrical signals to misfiring neural circuits in the brain.  This technology is used to control Parkinson’s disease tremors and is being tested in epilepsy, obesity, obsessive-compulsive disorder, intractable depression, and other areas. Dr. Lozano shared his future vision for deep brain stimulation and discussed its implications.
