The mechanism of high-frequency stimulation used in deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson's disease (PD) has not been completely elucidated. Previously, high-frequency stimulation of the rat entopeduncular nucleus, a basal ganglia output nucleus, elicited an increase in [K(+)](e) to 18 mm, in vitro. In this study, we assessed whether elevated K(+) can(More)
