Adaptive deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease: closed loop stimulation for Parkinson's.

Abstract:

Our understanding of the pathophysiology Parkinson’s disease has transformed over the last decade as we have come to appreciate the importance of changes in neuronal firing pattern that occur within the motor network in the dopamine deficient state. These changes in firing pattern, particularly increased synchrony result in oscillations that can be recorded as local field potentials. This thesis concerns itself with the study of beta oscillations which are characteristic of Parkinson’s dis...
