Clinical response to varying the stimulus parameters in deep brain stimulation for essential tremor
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the ventral intermediate nucleus of the thalamus for essential tremor is sometimes limited by side effects. The mechanisms by which DBS alleviates tremor or causesExpand

Short latency activation of cortex during clinically effective subthalamic deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease
Subthalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) is superior to medical therapy for the motor symptoms of advanced Parkinson's disease (PD), and additional evidence suggests that it improves refractoryExpand
