Based on research on the links between deep brain stimulation and its  applications in the field of psychiatry, the history of techniques is of  great importance in this book in order to understand the scope of the  fields of application of electricity in brain sciences. The concepts of  brain electricity, stimulation, measurement and therapy are further  developed to identify lines of convergence, ruptures and conceptual  perspectives for a materialistic understanding of human nature that  emerged during the 18th century. In an epistemological posture, at the  crossroads of the concepts of epistemes, as stated by Foucault, and  phenomenotechnics, as conceived by Bachelard, the analyses focus on the  technical content of the theories while inscribing them in the language  and specificities of each era.
