Persistent suppression of subthalamic beta-band activity during rhythmic finger tapping in Parkinson's disease

Abstract:

Objective: The function of synchronous oscillatory activity at beta band (15-30. Hz) frequencies within the basal ganglia is unclear. Here we sought support for the hypothesis that beta activity has a global function within the basal ganglia and is not directly involved in the coding of specific biomechanical parameters of movement. Methods: We recorded local field potential activity from the subthalamic nuclei of 11 patients with Parkinson's disease during a synchronized tapping task at thre...
