New functionalities are being developed in pyDBS through a French-USA collaboration between Dr. Sonia Pujol (Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School), Drs. Eric Bardinet and Sara Fernandez-Vidal (Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle Epiniere, Hopital Pitie Salpetriere), and Dr. Pierre Jannin (Universite de Rennes).
