The 21st century will be the century in which we will unravel the intricacies of the brain and in which we will use electricity to interact with our electro-chemical mainframe better. At Border Sessions
Wouter Serdijn will explain how electroceuticals, the electronic counterparts of pharmaceuticals, can help to successfully treat neurological disorders. Further, he will sketch a technological avenue of their future development by making electroceuticals smaller, more energy efficient and more intelligent. Examples will be given for fully-implantable bionic ears and neurostimulators for the treatment of tinnitus, Tourette’s syndrome and epilepsy.
