Researchers Find Neuro Biomarkers to Create Smart Brain Stimulators for Parkinson’s Treatment

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms include muscle rigidity, tremors, and changes in speech and gait. After diagnosis, treatments can help relieve symptoms, but there is no cure. Related Abbott, Medtronic Driving Deep Brain Stimulation Innovation for Parkinson’s Disease The established treatment for this condition is high-frequency brain stimulation. […]

DARPA Funds Six Organizations to Support Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology program

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded funding to six organizations to support the Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program. The groups will attempt to develop high-resolution, bidirectional brain-machine interfaces that match the performance of implanted electrodes without the need for surgery. The six organizations are: Battelle Memorial Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, Johns […]
Medtronic DBS for epilepsy

Medtronic to Launch Deep Brain Simulation for Medically-Refractory Epilepsy in the U.S.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. About a third of patients do not respond positively to medicines and some experience mild to severe side-effects. Medtronic is introducing deep brain stimulation therapy (DBS) as an option for treating […]
DBS for Parkinsons

Abbott, Medtronic Driving Deep Brain Stimulation Innovation for Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement.

Draper Develops Wireless Brain Implant that Can Make a Big Impact on Treatment of...

Draper, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based engineering company has developed a small wireless neuromodulation device that may be small enough to implant into the interior of the cranium right against the brain. The system, although tiny in size, is poised to make a big impact in treating disease through its networked abilities. Read more New Method of […]
