#3: Marwan Hariz – a strong role for imaging and being critical in the field of DBS
In this episode, Marwan Hariz shares insight about why imaging is both the past and the future for deep brain stimulation, how its role of being the “court jester” or “stereotaxy police” emerged and why critical discussions are important for our field.
