The past decade has seen surging interest in deep brain stimulation for dystonias and Tourette syndrome in pediatric patients. A team of experts review the potential and remaining hurdles for pediatric DBS.
Current approaches to chronic low back pain aren’t working. Here’s why and how Cleveland Clinic’s Neurological Institute hopes to upend them in a new population health initiative for chronic back pain.
Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute investigators are hoping that deep brain stimulation (DBS) will prove effective in helping patients regain motor function lost to a stroke.
Neural implants will soon play a role in treating various neurologic diseases, thanks to expert use of fMRI during electrode placement. Here’s how the technique is being applied for epilepsy, movement disorders and more.

Andre Machado, MD, PhD, the new Chair of Cleveland Clinic’s Neurological Institute, kicked off Cleveland Clinic’s 13th Annual Medical Innovation Summit by sharing his vision for neuroscience innovation.
Although noninvasive brain stimulation is promising for neurological deficits, its assumption of generic brain plasticity is flawed. Advanced mapping of the brain may reveal insights that help determine plasticity variances.
This pioneering study by Cleveland Clinic researchers shows that stimulating the emotional networks of the brain in patients with chronic pain is safe and can be effective in some cases.
A preclinical investigation by Cleveland Clinic demonstrates the potential of deep brain stimulation to aid the brain’s formation of new neural connections during stroke recovery.
Many factors contribute to the sensation we call pain. A new study is the first to address the emotional component of thalamic pain using deep-brain stimulation.
In properly selected patients, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) can be an effective therapy for managing refractory pain. The best outcomes are likely achieved by pairing SCS with long-term physical therapy and rehabilitation.
