In the present paper we have reviewed five different studies that relate to neuropsychological consequences of stereotactic thalamotomy and thalamic stimulation in patients with Parkinson's disease. The neuropsychological results are in a strict sense confined to thalamotomy and thalamic stimulation, although the more general message of the importance of investigating cognitive functions before and after surgery applies to other stereotactic techniques for surgical treatment of movement… CONTINUE READING
