A new computer model shows the beneficial effects of deep brain stimulation arise from how it interrupts the cycle promoting runway beta in a circuit loop between the subthalamic nucleus and striatum.
A set of neurons in the subthalamic nucleus have been implicated in canceling planned behaviors or actions.
Researchers have developed a neurofeedback system which allows Parkinson's patients to voluntarily control beta wave activity in the subthalamic nucleus.
Researchers report the adverse cognitive effects associated with DBS in Parkinson's patients are linked to a different neural pathway than the one responsible for the motor effects generated by the treatment.
Researchers have identified a novel, pain sensing network that links the subthalamic nucleus to a pain processing network in mouse models of Parkinson's disease.
Researchers report low frequency deep brain stimulation can help to improve cognitive function in people with Parkinson's disease.
Abnormal activity involving the globus pallidus may be responsible for movement dysfunction in Parkinson's disease, a new study reports.
