PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Monday 24th October 2022

Arrivals and registration from 11:00. The Hololens demonstration will be available from 11 am. The Hololens provides an interactive holographic exploration of the anatomical structures and pathways in the basal ganglia, coupled with a realistic representation of the DBS lead and stimulation field model. It is a superb way to visualise the anatomy and mechanisms of DBS and is an excellent learning experience for anyone involved in DBS, from beginners to experts.
