Oral #4: Bryce Cheek – Deep Brain Stimulation to Treat Depression

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Cynthia Furse

My UROP topic is the research and development of a new form of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) to help treat depression. This new method will differ from other previous forms of DBS because it will be non-invasive, leaving no chance for any negative side effects to patients’ brains.
The start of the new proposed DBS treatment will involve an arterial stent that will be inserted through the patients groin, and there will be electrodes placed on the head that will emit energy towards the stent.
