Deep artificial neural network models of neural encoding in vision and neurostimulation
There is a significant need for more effective treatments for neurological and psychiatric diseases. Implantable neurostimulators are increasingly used as new therapeutic options for these diseases. This work will discuss our approach to mitigate current limitations in two types of implantable neurostimulators: Deep brain stimulation in treating Parkinson’s disease and cortical prosthetics in vision. Deep brain stimulators (DBS) are typically configured to deliver therapeutic stimulation constantly, which can produce unavoidable side-effects and needlessly drains power. Modulating stimulation ...
