Which side effects can occur during therapy with neurotechnological implants?

According to the experience to date, hardly any side effects are caused by neurotechnological implants.

Compared to pharmaceuticals, they have very few side effects. However, in rare cases slight problems regarding motor or sensory skills may occur. Few patients also report mood changes.

These effects disappear as soon as the stimulation is turned off. In most cases, better adjustment of the system can minimize the side effects.
