We work on novel surgical approaches to treat Parkinson's disease, depression and Alzheimer's disease. We use brain imaging, electrophysiology and surgical techniques. The work in humans is complemented by laboratory work involving cell death in Parkinson's disease, effects of stimulation on hippocampal neurogenesis and animal models of deep brain stimulation.
