• Effects of deep brain stimulation in patients with Parkinson's disease

    2 monthes ago - By ScienceDaily

    Researchers have studied motor and cognitive effects of deep brain stimulation in patients with Parkinson's disease. Their results show that the adverse cognitive effects of deep brain stimulation are linked to a different neural pathway than that responsible for the treatment's desired motor effects. This finding will help optimize treatments for patients with Parkinson's disease.
