The frequency of stimulation is one of the primary factors determining the effectiveness of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in relieving tremor. DBS efficacy, however, may depend not only on the average frequency of stimulation, but also on the temporal pattern of stimulation. We conducted intraoperative measurements of the effect of temporally irregular DBS (nonconstant interpulse intervals) on tremor. As the coefficient of variation of irregular high frequency DBS trains increased, they became… CONTINUE READING
