Pallidal stimulation in dystonia affects cortical but not spinal inhibitory mechanisms.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the globus pallidus interna is an effective tool for the treatment of dystonia with possible distant effects reaching beyond the basal ganglia network. AIM We analyzed the cortical silent period (CoSP) to test inhibitory circuits at the cortical level, and the cutaneous silent period (CuSP) and the H-reflex to… (More)
