Dr. Upton has been an active paediatric and adult clinical neurologist since 1971. He is the Director of the Neurology and Epilepsy Clinics at McMaster University Medical Centre and Director of Diagnostic Neurophysiology. He was Director of the MS Clinic for 10 years and was head of the Division of Neurology in the Department of Medicine at McMaster University from 1980 to 2005 and is now Professor Emeritus.
Many treatments of brain disorders involve removal of part of the brain or medications. Modern technology now allows use of machines, stimulators and pacemakers that supplement or add to brain activity.

Dr. Upton will discuss some of those techniques that help patients with epilepsy, pain, Parkinson’s disease, movement disorders and depression. These electronic devices provide silent, painless and effective treatment without the use of medications.
