In two drug-resistant Parkinsonian subjects, who underwent thalamic chronic stimulation for extrapyramidal symptoms relief, median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) were recorded before and at different times following the thalamic lead implant. In both subjects, a transient obliteration of post-rolandic SEPs components was detected; pre-rolandic waves' amplitude was preserved or showed a tendency to increase after the beginning of chronic stimulation. Parietal waves' amplitude… CONTINUE READING
