The University of Washington is advancing research into deep brain stimulation, which is used to treat people with essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, and other conditions. At the Center for Neurotechnology, a team is designing and testing upgrades for devices to make them smarter and less intrusive. Along with enhanced brain sensors, new control algorithms, and machine-learning techniques to improve device performance, the team is ensuring the design meets the day-to-day usability needs of patients. Part of the "Science Nation" series.
