Publisher: MDPI AG 2017
Number of pages: 280
The issue is dedicated to applications of Deep Brain Stimulation and, in this issue, we would like to highlight the new developments that are taking place in the field. These include the application of new technology to existing indications, as well as 'new' indications. We would also like to highlight the most recent clinical evidence from international multicentre trials. The issue will include articles relating to movement disorders, pain, psychiatric indications, as well as emerging indications that are not yet accompanied by clinical evidence.

This review will discuss the cellular components of the nervous system first and then will consider the peripheral nervous system before discussing the Central nervous system. In the CNS we will consider the sensory systems and then motor systems.
