Deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus improves pain in Parkinson's disease.
In Parkinson's disease (PD), chronic pain is a common symptom which markedly affects the quality of life. Some physiological arguments proposed that Deep Brain Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus (STN-DBS) could improve pain in PD.

Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation in early stage Parkinson's disease.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective and approved therapy for advanced Parkinson's disease (PD), and a recent study suggests efficacy in mid-stage disease. This manuscript reports the results of a pilot trial investigating preliminary safety

Subthalamic Nucleus Deep Brain Stimulation in Parkinson's Disease: The Effect of Varying Stimulation Parameters.
Subthalamic Nucleus Deep Brain Stimulation (STN DBS) is a well-established and effective treatment modality for selected patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Since its advent, systematic exploration of the effect of stimulation parameters includin

Motor symptoms after deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus.
Stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN-DBS) is an established treatment with long-term beneficial effects on motor symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The efficacy of STN-DBS on non-dopaminergic motor symptoms remains less elucid

Deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic and pedunculopontine nucleus in a patient with Parkinson's disease.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) is a novel therapy developed to treat Parkinson's disease. We report a patient who underwent bilateral DBS of the PPN and subthalamic nucleus (STN). He suffered from freezing of gait

Subthalamic Nucleus Deep Brain Stimulation: Basic Concepts and Novel Perspectives.
Over the last decades, extensive basic and clinical knowledge has been acquired on the use of subthalamic nucleus (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson's disease (PD). It is now clear that mechanisms involved in the effects of this therapy

Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation is neuroprotective in the A53T α-synuclein Parkinson's disease rat model.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is a highly effective symptomatic therapy for motor deficits in Parkinson's disease (PD). An additional, disease-modifying effect has been suspected from studies in toxin-based PD animal m

Deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus modulates sensitivity to decision outcome value in Parkinson's disease.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus in Parkinson's disease is known to cause a subtle but important adverse impact on behaviour, with impulsivity its most widely reported manifestation. However, precisely which computational compo
