Kenneth Baker is an associate staff member in neurosciences at the Lerner Research Institute, with a secondary appointment in the Center for Neurological Restoration at the Neurological Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Baker earned his PhD at the University of Arizona, followed by a fellowship in movement disorders research in the neurology department at the Cleveland Clinic. His primary research interests revolve around the mechanisms and application of neurostimulation-based approaches to treating neurologic and psychiatric disease, with a particular emphasis on the use of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and brain injury.
