The term “Neuromodulation” is generally used to the procedures which modify the function of the nervous system through electrical stimulation. The neuromodulation domain is continuously expanding while it dates back to the 15th century AD[1]. Currently, these approaches are used in neurophysiological stimulation as well as therapeutic brain stimulation. Since the introduction of the stereotactic frame for human procedures by Ernst Spiegel and Henry Wycis in 1947, there is a continuous evolution of precise localization procedures[2]. Following the publication of reports of Benabid, Blond, and Sigfried groups on DBS for tremor, it took a new leap for application of these procedures in different pathologies. Promising results led to the gradual abandonment of the ablative procedures except for specific indications. A quick Pubmed search with the term “neuromodulation” revealed more than one million results (1943 2020), which shows rapid interest and investment growth in the field. The scope of neuromodulation currently involves simple procedures to control pain to complex neural interface mechanisms. Machine learning and the latest technologies involving complex brain machine interface will shape the neuromodulation's future in treating various pathologies.

In this abstract illustration, we intend to show different procedures commonly done for movement disorders and epilepsy. Although these procedures’ applications have a vast range, we could project only a few related to neurosurgery in the limited space.
