"Deep Brain Stimulation: The Scientific and Medical Revolution Beyond the Laboratory"
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), a revolutionary treatment for neurological and psychiatric disorders, offers unprecedented hope to patients, caregivers and family members. Yet with this revolutionary treatment come unprecedented philosophical and ethical challenges to all of us. Join Dr. Erwin B. Montgomery, Greenville Neuromodulation Scholar of Neuroscience and Philosophy, and a distinguished guest panel for a discussion of the many challenges presented us by DBS, which will follow an introductory lecture on this remarkable treatment. The lecture and discussion are to be held in the Lutheran Heritage Room, with refreshments and a social to follow.
Free and open to the public.
