Implanted micropump could deliver epilepsy drugs right into the brain

4 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

A promising new treatment for epilepsy directly targets the nerve cells, deep within the brain, that cause seizures. The treatment uses an electronic micropump and an anticonvulsant drug to inhibit the relevant areas of the brain without affecting healthy brain regions. Show More Summary

Matter: Clues to How an Electric Treatment for Parkinson’s Works

New research provides clues to how deep brain stimulation helps patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Electronic micropump to deliver treatments deep within the brain

For a condition such as epilepsy, it is essential to act at exactly the right time and place in the brain. For this reason, a team of researchers has developed an organic electronic micropump which, when combined with an anti-convulsant drug, enables localized inhibition of epileptic seizure in brain tissue in vitro.
