  • The objective of this pilot study is to characterize the abnormal neuronal firing patterns of basal ganglia neurons and those in the premotor cortex in patients with treatment-resistant movement disorders undergoing deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Fifteen adult patients with treatment-resistant movement disorders who are undergoing deep brain stimulation surgery at Suburban Hospital, Bethesda, Maryland, will be studied. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This is a physiology study of treatment-resistant movement disorder patients who have been scheduled for implantation of a deep brain stimulation device into the Nucleus accumbens. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This is a physiology study of medically refractory patients who have been scheduled for implantation of a deep brain stimulation device into basal ganglia or thalamic structures. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • We describe the first patient who developed a clinical syndrome related to an IIH following a bilateral subthalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedure for Parkinson's disease with the particularity that the clinical expression of the IIH syndrome was atypical because of the presence of intracerebral electrodes.

  • Deep brain stimulation may have a beneficial effect on driving ability for people with Parkinson's disease, according to a new study published in the December 18, 2013, online issue of Neurology┬«, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. (redorbit.com)
  • Deep brain stimulation uses a surgical implant similar to a pacemaker to send electrical impulses to the brain. (redorbit.com)
  • Up until now, we weren't sure how deep brain stimulation would affect driving," said study author Carsten Buhmann, MD, of University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany. (redorbit.com)
  • Deep brain stimulation suppresses pallidal low frequency activity in patients with phasic dystonic movements. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Deep brain stimulation of the globus pallidus internus alleviates involuntary movements in patients with dystonia. (ox.ac.uk)
  • One hypothesis is that deep brain stimulation suppresses abnormally enhanced synchronized oscillatory activity within the motor cortico-basal ganglia network. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Here, we explore deep brain stimulation-induced modulation of pathological low frequency (4-12 Hz) pallidal activity that has been described in local field potential recordings in patients with dystonia. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Therefore, local field potentials were recorded from 16 hemispheres in 12 patients undergoing deep brain stimulation for severe dystonia using a specially designed amplifier allowing simultaneous high frequency stimulation at therapeutic parameter settings and local field potential recordings.

  • Symptoms
  • These symptoms are caused by a combination of increased intracranial pressure due to a space-occupying lesion (headache, vomiting, confusion, coma), infection (fever, fatigue etc.) and focal neurologic brain tissue damage (hemiparesis, aphasia etc. (wikipedia.org)
