BACKGROUND Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the anterior nucleus of the thalamus) (ANT) has been suggested as a treatment option in refractory epilepsy. The targeting of ANT is especially challenging due to its poor visualization in commonly used MRI sequences, lack of easily observable symptom relief during surgery and high degree of anatomical variation between individuals. OBJECTIVES To study whether intraoperative microelectrode recording (MER), a method widely used in movement disorder… CONTINUE READING
