My name is Michael Okun, I'm a professor of neurology at the University of Florida at the Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration, and I'm also the national medical director for the National Parkinson's Foundation. And today I'm going to be presenting a lecture on deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease. And it's going to be a nice overview of the field for people who may be interested in this topic.

These are my conflicts of interests. And I have no industry conflicts of interest, I don't take any personal contributions from any industry sources. And all of the deep brain stimulation work is funded either by the National Institutes of Health or by foundations.

This is a picture of our group. And I always like to acknowledge the group here that is so outstanding in the Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration. We're located in Gainesville, Florida in the United States. And this is the group that makes all the special things happen, and so when I talk to you about deep brain stimulation and some of the work that our group has done and collaborated with other groups, you'll know I'm speaking for many people, not just myself.

This is a list of many of those people who I am deeply indebted to in the deep brain stimulation area, particularly Kelly Foote who is our neurosurgeon at the University of Florida.
