- Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) is a novel neurosurgical therapy developed to address symptoms of gait freezing and postural instability in Parkinson's disease and related disorders. Here we summarise our non-human primate investigations of relevance to our surgical targeting of the PPN and relate the primate research to initial clinical experience of PPN DBS. © Springer-Verlag 2010.
