Electromagnetic analysis of deep brain stimulation
  In this contribution the stimulus complications in DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) are evaluated and discussed. In particular we present a new method to predict the network response when a DBS stimulus is applied. A neural network similarly to ipsi-contralateral nerve topology is presented. The network consists of 175 neurons arranged in three layers. To validate the DBS stimulus propagation extensive numerical analyses have been conducted through Neuron software simulations. Results confirm the possibility to predict the correct stimulation parameters.
