Collaborative Opportunities for Research in Neurosurgery

Ashwin Viswanathan, M.D.

Functional neurosurgery to treat movement disorders and pain provides a unique opportunity to study the nervous system. In this presentation, we will discuss neurosurgical techniques such as deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, and stereotactic procedures to lesion the nervous system during which there are opportunities to stimulation and record from the brain and spinal cord. The currently available technologies will be reviewed along with key areas for collaborative research with biomedical engineering.
