Kendall H. Lee, M.D., Ph. D., director of the Mayo Clinic Neural Engineering Laboratory describes research into deep brain stimulation (DBS), including WINCS, a device developed by his lab for the measurement and recording of neurotransmitter concentrations in the brain to track and identify the effects of DBS.

Violinist Still Making Music After DBS Surgery

You may have heard the story of a professional musician who played the violin while undergoing brain surgery at Mayo Clinic. Dr. Lee and his surgical team implanted electrodes into Roger Frisch's brain to stop a tremor that could have ended his career of more than 40 years. Today, he continues to be one of the Minnesota Orchestra's foremost violinists, playing for audiences on the world's stage.
