Intraoperative microelectrode single unit recordings are routinely made in the subthalamic nucleus (STN) of awake and alert Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients during surgery for implantation of deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes. These recordings not only assist in determining the optimal target for electrode implantation, but also offer the unique opportunity to study movement-evoked responses from the basal ganglia. We report on the responses of human STN neurons to eye movements from… CONTINUE READING
