A commonly adopted surgical target in deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedures, the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is located deep within the brain and is surrounded by delicate deep-brain structures. Symptoms of Parkinson's disease can be reduced by precisely implanting a multi-electrode stimulator at a specific location within the STN and delivering the appropriate signal to the target. A number of techniques have recently been proposed to facilitate STN DBS surgical targeting and thereby improve… CONTINUE READING
