Adriana is a biomedical engineer with a particular interest in studying the brain and its disorders.
The goal of her project is to reduce DBS-induced side effects in Parkinson's disease patients, in particular, speech impairments. She uses Freesurfer, MRtrix, and Lead-DBS to relate stimulation parameters with speech side effects.
