Brain Pacemakers in Consumer Medical Electronics Improve Quality of Life: Benefits, Risks, and Challenges

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

I recently (8 September 2017) had the pleasure of speaking with Gary Olhoeft, who, in 2009, had a deep-brain stimulation (DBS) device implanted to help him combat Parkinson's disease. Dr. Olhoeft is a retired emeritus professor of geophysics at the Colorado School of Mines, Golden. He previously taught a number of subjects related to advanced electrical and electromagnetic methods, antennas, near-surface field methods, ground-penetrating radar, and complex resistivity.
