LECTURE: Closed loop control of seizures.

Amongst the novel therapeutic strategies for treatment for epilepsy is being investigated the delivery of electrical stimuli to neural targets thought to be responsible for the generation, propagation or termination of epileptic seizures in order to prevent or more rapidly terminate seizure events upon their automatic detection. Therefore, Dean Freestone lecture will explore the utilization of a closed-loop system for the automated detection and control of epileptic seizures.
