Neuroengineering Seminar: “Advancing Deep Brain Stimulation Therapy in Movement Disorders: from surgical implantation to behavior-based responsive therapeutic stimulation” (Enrico Opri)

Sponsored by the Center for Neuroengineering and Therapeutics, and the Departments of Neurosurgery and Bioengineering. Join Zoom Meeting https://pennmedicine.zoom.us/j/97483734781 Meeting ID: 974 8373 4781 Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has become standard therapy for medically refractory patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), essential tremor (ET), and other neurological disorders. The two main challenges for DBS standard-of-care are […]

Neuroengineering/BE Seminar: “Photovoltaic Restoration of Sight in Age-related Macular Degeneration” (Daniel Palanker)

Presented by The Center for Neuroengineering and Therapeutics Presents and The Bioengineering Department. Check email for zoom link or Everett Prince at eprince@seas.upenn.edu. Retinal degenerative diseases lead to blindness due to loss of the “image capturing” photoreceptors, while neurons in the “image-processing” inner retinal layers are relatively well preserved. Information can be reintroduced into the […]
