Movement kinematic after deep brain stimulation associated microlesions.
In: Journal of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry, Vol. 83, No. 10: pp. 1022-1026
Deep brain stimulation is widely used for the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease and dystonia. After the implantation of electrodes an immediate improvement of clinical symptoms has been described. It is unclear, whether movement kinematics are also changed by this 'microlesion effect'.
