The emergence of oscillations and synchrony among neurons of the basal ganglia is a well-known characteristic of Parkinson's disease. In this study we used intra-operative microelectrode recording to investigate this interrelationship between these two phenomena in the subthalamic nucleus (STN) neurons of 39 human Parkinson's disease patients undergoing… CONTINUE READING
