Doctoral Student Tim Brown Collaborating on Neural Engineering Research

Submitted by Arielle Hill-Moses on

Doctoral student Tim Brown's work in the area of neuroethics was mentioned in an article about cross-disciplinary work at the University of Washington with a new Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) system.

DBS systems are used as a treatment for essential tremor. One area of research around the Medtronic Activa® PC+S Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) system is the potential for allowing the user to control the system voluntarily. Tim will be working on the question of how having the ability to control the device voluntarily or not might change how users think about themselves.
