High-frequency stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus inhibits the firing of juxtacellular labelled 5-HT-containing neurones.

Abstract:

High-frequency stimulation (HFS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is an established neurosurgical therapy for movement disability in advanced Parkinson's disease (PD), but some patients experience psychiatric side-effects like depression. In a previous electrophysiological study, we observed that HFS of the STN inhibited a population of neurones in the rat dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN), with firing properties characteristic of 5-HT neurones. The present study extended these findings to a second ...
