Tremor-specific neuronal oscillation pattern in dorsal subthalamic nucleus of parkinsonian patients
Brain Stimulation, 07/31/2012
Contarino MF et al. – The study supports the hypothesis that the presence of tremor is associated with a distinctive neuronal oscillations pattern. In particular, the authors demonstrate the specificity of the association of theta frequencies in the dorsal Subthalamic nucleus (STN) with tremor. Identification of symptom–specific characteristics of intraoperative microrecordings in the STN may lead to refinement of targeting for each patient, tailored to the specific clinical presentation.
