About

The purpose of the study is to determine if non-invasive measurements of brain waves from the skin called electroencephalography (EEG) can predict whether the brain stimulator will help your symptoms. Our goal is to obtain these brain wave measurements with patients both awake and under general anesthesia, and then to evaluate which brain wave patterns are associated with clinical improvement to determine if they could be useful for predicting whether the surgery will work. If such predictive measures were established based upon the findings of this study, they could be used in the future to improve surgical outcomes in the following ways: (1) to help guide surgical targeting in the operating room awake or under anesthesia, (2) to guide post-operative programming in clinic, and (3) and to develop potential feedback systems for "automatic" programming of the brain stimulator system at home.
