Professor Alexander Green
Professor of Neurosurgery, University of Oxford
Professor Green is a Functional Neurosurgeon, with his interests lying in Deep Brain Stimulation, Spinal Cord Stimulation (DBS), and other forms of Neuromodulation. His original research looked at the effects of DBS of the periaqueductal grey (PAG) area on blood pressure and other cardiovascular parameters. For this work, he won the Gordon Holmes prize and the International Neuromodulation Society Young Investor Award. He has expanded his research into the investigation of the effects of DBS on respiratory and bladder function, along with how Dorsal Root Ganglion stimulation can be used to alter blood pressure and heart rhythm. He is currently running trials into development of bioelectronic devices to control chronic pain, consciousness and cardiovascular disease.
