The following work aims to determine the most robust optimization algorithm among common algorithms for optimizing the forward head model, and analyzes the sensitivity of the conductivity values given different conditions on stimulation position, measurement positions and number of compartments.
The 2016 AANS Presidential Address: Leading the way.
TLDR
This AANS presidential address focuses on enduring values of the neurosurgical profession that transcend the current political climate and cites "de-professionalism" and commoditization of medicine as foremost among the threats that confront medicine and surgery today.
Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson's Disease: Historical and Neuroethical Aspects 35
TLDR
The historical development of DBS techniques as applied to the therapy of Parkinson’s disease is explored, including their status as less destructive and partially reversible successors to surgical techniques employed in the pre-L-DOPA era.
Control Theory and Deep Brain Stimulation for Relief from Neurological Diseases
TLDR
Attempts made by the authors to develop constructive models of the phenomenology of DBS, based on classical Control Theory tools such as the Nyquist Stability Criterion, the Describing Function, the Root Locus method, Liapunov's theorem of the First Approximation and the concept of the Equivalent Nonlinearity associated with injection of a "high frequency" wave into a nonlinear feedback loop to quench troublesome "low frequency" oscillations are presented.
