To date tens of thousands of people worldwide have received deep brain stimulation to alleviate symptoms of several treatment-resistant disorders: from Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor to chronic pain, epilepsy and psychiatric conditions, such as obsessive compulsive disorder, major depression and Tourette syndrome. But what are the potentials and limitations of this technology? And what is the real impact on patient’s life? Is there a risk for personality alterations?

Such controversial issues and many more will be addressed during the third bid-workshop brains in dialogue on deep brain stimulation which will take place on 20-21 September 2010 in Warsaw, Poland (APPLICATION CLOSED).

Scientists, clinicians, patients, philosophers, sociologists, journalists and other stakeholders will gather to discuss the state of the art of deep brain stimulation for neurological and psychiatric conditions and the ethical and social implications.
