  • Design and Prototyping a Smart Deep Brain Stimulator: An Autonomous Neuro-Sensing and Stimulating Electrode System

    This article presents the design and prototyping of an innovative smart deep brain stimulator (SDBS) that consists of brain-implantable smart electrodes and a wireless-connected external controller. SDBS electrodes operate as completely autonomous electronic implants that are capable of sensing and recording neural activities in real time, performing local processing, and generating arbitrary waveforms for neuro-stimulation. A bidirectional, secure, fully passive wireless communication backbone was designed and integrated into this smart electrode to maintain contact between the electrodes and the controller. The standard EPC-Global protocol has been modified and adopted as the communication protocol in this design. The proposed SDBS was demonstrated and tested through a hardware prototypes.

  • MRI safety assessment of a generic deep brain stimulator

    The radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field of magnetic resonance (MR) scanners can result in significant tissue heating due to the RF coupling with the conducting parts of medical implants. The objective of this paper is to assess the safety of a generic deep brain stimulator (DBS) during MRI scans based on a combined numerical and experimental procedure described in [1]. The evaluation is performed for 1.5 T MR scanners using a generic model of a deep brain stimulator with a helical lead. The results show that the approach is technically feasible and provides sound and conservative information on the potential heating of implants.

  • Towards a demand driven deep-brain stimulator for the treatment of movement disorders

    In order to improve control of abnormal spontaneous electrical activity in the brains of patients with movement disorders we are developing a deep brain stimulator which records from the stimulating electrode to detect pathological oscillatory activity and responds with patterned electrical stimulation optimally programmed to arrest it. In a collaborative effort of clinicians, neurophysiologists, bioengineers and signal analysts, we will develop a prototype device that is able to utilise predictive brain activity, already identified for symptoms such as tremor and dystonic bursts, to deliver a short pulse of high frequency stimulation to arrest the onset of the ictus. This shift from current 180 Hz continuous stimulation to an estimated 3-7 Hz intermittent bursting stimulation will substantially decrease the power requirements and hence the cumulative costs of subsequent surgery. Should such a prototype be effective in the experimental Parkinsonian primate model, we will continue the work towards a clinically viable device.

  • A Beta-Band Energy Detecting Circuit for Deep Brain Stimulator

    This paper presents the design and measurement of a feature extraction circuit which is able to detect the pathological Beta-band oscillation related to the Parkinson's disease, so as to control the Deep Brain Stimulator. The proposed circuit includes a 2nd-order transconductance-capacitance (Gm-C) filter and an analog multiplier. The operated signal range is improved by using a fully differential architecture; body input, source degeneration, gate degeneration, as well as a bump circuit are used to achieve low Gm and high input range. All transistors in the circuit are operated in the sub-threshold region with 1-volt supply voltage, thus the whole circuit consumes only 2.8uW. Finally, the measurement result of the input range is 400mVpp within 1% variation in Gm.

  • Output stage of a current-steering multipolar and multisite deep brain stimulator

    Clinical deep brain stimulation (DBS) is based on the use of cylindrical electrodes driven in monopolar or bipolar configurations. The simulation field spreads symmetrically around the electrode modulating both targeted and non- targeted neural structures. Recent advances have focused on novel stimulation techniques based on the use of high-density segmented electrodes, which allow current-steering and field-shaping capability. This paper presents the architecture of a multi-channel current-steering stimulator output stage that allows for monopolar, bipolar, tripolar and quadripolar multi-site stimulation. The core of the output stage comprises N independent high- compliance current drivers (HCCDs), capable of delivering up to 1.5 mA complementary currents in 10 different current ranges. Each of the N HCCDs can drive up to 8 adjacent electrode contacts thanks to a 2-32 multiplexer controlled by a 5-32 decoder. The HCCD was designed in a HV 0.18μm CMOS process. The circuits were simulated in Cadence Spectre and simulated results are presented in the paper.
