The article focuses on the co-design methodologies presented by Interuniversity Microelectronics Center (IMEC) for deep-brain stimulation. IMEC researchers claim to have developed a prototype multi-electrode stimulation and recording probe for deep-brain stimulation, which is intended to pave the way for medical design tool developers to work in supplying biomedical electronics for the healthcare market and can hold promise in the medical treatment of Parkinson's disease.
