Project: Optimilisation of deep brain stimulation for epilepsy by means of neurophysiological experimental animal research

project duration
01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
abstract
Epilepsy is a neurological disease caused by an uncontrolled electrical activity in the brain. Because 30% of all patients can noet be treated with anti-epileptica, new treating modalities are being developed. Because 30% of all patients can not be treated with anti-epileptica, new treating modalities modalities are being developed. A still experimental treatment includes electrical stimulation of deep brain structures, the so called 'deep brain stimulation'. This research tries to stipulate the most effective stimulation parameters.
