Philip Starr, M.D., Ph.D.

Professor, University of California, San Francisco

My research goals are (1) to understand the pathophysiology of movement disorders, and mechanism of deep brain stimulation (DBS), using the combined basal ganglia and cortical recording in humans undergoing surgery; and (2) develop novel stimulation paradigms to improve clinical therapies.
