OBJECTIVES In the present study we investigated whether in advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) patients the frontal component of short somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) to median nerve stimulation may be modified by basal ganglia deep brain stimulation (DBS). METHODS We recorded the SEPs in 6 PD patients undergoing bilateral functional neurosurgery in the internal globus pallidus (GPi) (4 patients) and in the nucleus subthalamicus (STN) (two patients) during ineffective and effective… CONTINUE READING
