Epilepsy: Understanding the brain when neurological disorders occur

Neurological disorders have a really significant patient burden, with some estimates suggesting the impact as many as 1 billion people across the globe. But simultaneously, these are diseases which are both challenging to treat and still remain relatively poorly understood.

Snapshots of the brain have been available through imaging technologies for a while, but coming up with devices that are able to monitor the brain in real time has proved a huge challenge.

Today we ask, what will improvements to continuous monitoring devices enable for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders?

In the second episode of Invent:Health Season 2, Matt Parker speaks to Alex Stokoe, a neurotechnology consultant at TTP, and Professor Martha Morrell, Clinical Professor of Neurology at Stanford University
