Using maths to unlock the secrets of Parkinson’s

Mathematical models can be used to improve the quality of life for patients with Parkinson’s disease. The models are used to analyse recordings of brain activity during deep brain stimulation, a surgical treatment used to ease symptoms associated with Parkinson’s.

The mathematical analysis of brain activity can then be used to help neurologists pinpoint where to implant micro-electrodes while performing deep brain stimulation, in order to provide the best outcome for their patients.
