Does anyone know the price for a deep brain simulator? I'm giving a presentation on it for a graduate class and I couldn't find the price for the device anywhere on the internet.

I remembered the device costing about $20,000 from when I did my post-bacc research (03-04), but didn't know for sure, so I found an article you can use. The article says 12,000 pounds sterling, which is about the same.
