Abstract

Implantable devices for controlling medically intractable seizures nondestructively are rapidly advancing. These offer reversible, potentially, restorative options beyond traditional, surgical procedures, which rely, largely on resection or ablation of selected brain sites. Several lines of, investigation aimed at improving efficacy of these devices are discussed, ranging from identifying novel subcortical, white matter, or cell-type specific targets to engineering advances for adaptive techniques based- on continuous, dynamic system analysis.
