Electrophysiological confirmation of the zona incerta as a target for surgical treatment of disabling involuntary arm movements in multiple sclerosis: use of local field potentials

Abstract:

Lesioning or chronic deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the nucleus ventralis intermedius results in abolition of tremor in the contralateral limbs in Parkinson's disease (PD) and also in essential tremor. Recently, chronic DBS of the subthalamic nucleus has also proved to be very effective in reducing contralateral limb tremor in PD. These targets have been less effective in controlling the complex limb tremor often seen in multiple sclerosis (MS). Consequently, other targets have been sought i...
