Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical treatment in, e.g., Parkinson’s Disease. Electrical stimulation in DBS is delivered to a certain target through electrodes implanted into the brain. Recent developments aiming at better stimulation target coverage and lesser side effects have led to an increase in the number of contacts in a DBS lead as well as higher hardware complexity. This paper proposes an optimization-based approach to alleviation of the fault impact on the resulting… CONTINUE READING
