'A Novel Neurostimulator for Ventilated Patients in Intensive Care'
James FitzGerald studied Physics at Oxford University, then Medicine, also at Oxford. He trained in Neurosurgery in Nottingham and Cambridge. After obtaining a PhD in Neural Interfacing at Cambridge University he returned to Oxford and is an associate professor in the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, and honorary Consultant Neurosurgeon.
His clinical practice is in deep brain stimulation, spinal cord and dorsal root ganglion stimulation and peripheral nerve stimulation, for the treatment of movement disorders and neuropathic pain. He is the founder of the UK Deep Brain Stimulation Registry, and serves on the board of the Neuromodulation Society of the UK and Ireland (NSUKI), and as an editor for Neuromodulation, the journal of the International Neuromodulation Society.
He leads the Oxford Neural Interfacing Group which focuses on developing electronic devices that interface directly with parts of the nervous system. These include implanted devices that interface directly with the peripheral nerves and the brain, for prosthetic control and sensory restoration. Recently, noninvasive approaches to nerve stimulation have become an increasingly important part of the group’s work.
