Effects of deep brain stimulation in patients with Parkinson's disease: Improved effects on motor function and fewer side effects possible

Effects of deep brain stimulation in patients with Parkinson's disease: Improved effects on motor function and fewer side effects possible

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.
