Reducing cognitive-motor declines associated with bilateral subthalamic deep brain stimulation through computational modelling in a Parkinson's disease patient.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Bilateral subthalamic (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) provides symptom relief for the majority of well-screened advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients. However, we have recently shown that bilateral STN DBS may result in significant declines in cognitiveemotor performance of PD patients. The spread of current to nonmotor areas of the STN… (More)
