The effect of high frequency stimulation (HFS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) on the spontaneous activity of substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) dopaminergic neurons was investigated in normal rats and in rats with globus pallidus (GP) lesions. In normal rats, the spontaneous activity of SNc neurons did not significantly differ from that of rats with GP… CONTINUE READING
