Treatment options for movement disorders are very limited. To improve the effectiveness of deep brain stimulation, a better understanding of the interaction between different parts of the brain is required. Also the role of different oscillations in motor control needs to be determined.
Dr. Petra Fischer recorded EEG activity and subthalamic nucleus (STN) local field potentials in Parkinson’s patients, during movement. In this webinar she explains her findings. Her focus lies on neuronal synchronization between de motor cortex and subthalamic nucleus and how gamma and beta oscillations are involved in motor control.
