Dr. Kai Loewenbrück

Visiting Scientist

Dr Kai Loewenbrück is a neurologist at the University Hospital of Dresden, Germany, and a Visiting Scientist at the Unit. He specialises in the treatment of people with advanced Parkinson’s. Kai’s primary research aim is to further investigate the potential of ‘closed-loop’ Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) as a therapy for Parkinson’s. He is specifically interested in how the closed-loop approach may diminish side effects, such as impaired speech intelligibility and altered behavioural control. In addition, Kai aims to understand how closed-loop DBS could be crafted to better address specific problems of motor performance in people with advanced Parkinson’s, such as freezing. Kai is conducting his studies as a collaboration between Professor Peter Brown’s Group and his home university.
