This is a research study of an investigational device called the Responsive Neurostimulator (RNS) System. The RNS System is a brain stimulation device that is surgically implanted. It consists of a battery operated box and small wires that are placed in contact with the portion of the brain where the patient’s epileptic seizures originate. The RNS system detects seizure activity and delivers a pulse of electrical energy to disrupt the seizure. The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of the RNS system in treating seizures. Approximately 240 subjects will be enrolled in 28 centers in the United States. Approximately 10 subjects will be enrolled at OHSU.
