Dear Colleague

Welcome to this internet based course for DBS, with focus on visual anatomical targeting.

The aim of this website is to cover every detail of DBS that is of importance from a clinical perspective, including the most fundamental basics. The site is therefore suitable for young colleagues who are starting their training within the field of stereotactic functional neurosurgery and DBS. Hopefully, some of the lectures will also be of interest to more experienced colleagues, and to non-neurosurgeons with an interest in DBS.
