Project description

Over the past few decades, brain stimulation has been used to treat a variety of medical conditions. A few examples of such conditions are epileptic seizures and Parkinson's disease. In both cases, brain stimulation is used to lessen the effects of the disease and to improve the quality of life of the patient. The goal of this project is to understand how the main brain stimulation devices in the market work and to find ways to improve them.
