Parkinsonian impairment correlates with spatially extensive subthalamic oscillatory synchronization.
The local strength of pathological synchronization in the region of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is emerging as a possible factor in the motor impairment of Parkinson's Disease (PD). In particular, correlations have been repeatedly demonstrated between treatment-induced suppressions of local oscillatory activity in the beta frequency band and improvements in motor performance. However, a mechanistic role for beta activity is brought into question by the difficulty in showing a correlation be...Expand abstract
