#21: Aysegul Gunduz – Engineering in DBS, closed loop & brain sensing

In this episode, Aysegul Gunduz & Julian Neumann speak about Ayse’s exciting work on closed-loop DBS in tremor, their tic-detector, and thriving as an engineer in a medical field such as DBS. They also touch upon minority groups in the field. The main focus of their 2020 Science Translational Medicine study, in which Ayse’s team developed and studied a chronically embedded cortico-thalamic closed-loop deep brain stimulation system for treatment of essential tremor – clearly a landmark study in the field that brought together advances in engineering and medical research. Ayse also speaks about industry collaborations and the value of novel devices that enable scientific studies that had not been possible, in the past.
I hope you enjoy the conversation between Ayse and Julian as much as I did and thank you for tuning in!
