Circuit-Based Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinsons disease; Udall Project 1 Aim 2 and 3


Study objectives: -To characterize spontaneous and movement-related LFP changes in STN and GP in externalized patients under conditions that modulates the severity of tremor, bradykinesia and rigidity (off meds/off stim; on meds/off stim; off meds/on stim, on meds/on stim). -To characterize and compare the relative effect of different forms of closed loop stimulation (e.g., triggered at specific thresholds of low beta/HFO PAC or beta band activity) to standard isochronal high frequency DBS on motor signs and performance during movement.
