Deep Brain Stimulation for the Treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury

This study involves the treatment of cognitive impairment secondary to moderate to severe brain injury using central thalamic deep brain stimulation. Although all patients will receive sti...

Deep Brain Stimulation in Treating Patients With Dystonia

RATIONALE: Dystonia is a disorder in which the muscles that control voluntary movements are persistently or intermittently contracted (not relaxed). Deep brain stimulation is provided by a...

Effects of Deep Brain Stimulation of the Dentate Nucleus on Cerebellar Ataxia

Cerebellar ataxias are a group of disorders caused by cerebellar affections, for which currently no specific treatment is available. Some limited studies verified the effects of cerebellar...

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Retrospective Outcomes Study

The primary objective of this study is to characterize real-world clinical outcomes of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) using retrospective review of de-identified patient records.

Deep Brain Stimulation in Patients With Dystonia

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN)for dystonia.

An Open-Label Clinical Trial of Hypothalamic Deep Brain Stimulation for Human Morbid Obesity: BLESS Study Protocol.

Human morbid obesity is increasing worldwide in an alarming way. The hypothalamus is known to mediate its mechanisms. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) may be an alte...

Deep Brain Stimulation of the Hypothalamus Leads to Increased Metabolic Rate in Refractory Obesity.

Obesity has become a worldwide epidemic, with very few long-term successful treatment options for refractory disease. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the bilateral lateral hypothalamus (LH) in refract...

Coherence: A Unifying Mechanism of Deep Brain Stimulation.

Deep brain stimulation is a powerful neurostimulation technique that proved its efficacy in treating a group of neurological diseases. Several scientific works tried to understand the mechanism of act...

Stimulating the nucleus accumbens in obesity: A positron emission tomography study after deep brain stimulation in a rodent model.

The nucleus accumbens (NAcc) has been suggested as a possible target for deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the treatment of obesity. Our hypothesis was that NAcc-DBS would modulate brain regions related...

Determining the Rotational Orientation of Directional Deep Brain Stimulation Leads Employing Flat-Panel Computed Tomography.

Directional deep brain stimulation (DBS) constitutes an emerging technology that allows selective stimulation of target structures via partitioned electrode contacts. In order to effectively perform t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously.

Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.

A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.

The part of brain that lies behind the BRAIN STEM in the posterior base of skull (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR). It is also known as the "little brain" with convolutions similar to those of CEREBRAL CORTEX, inner white matter, and deep cerebellar nuclei. Its function is to coordinate voluntary movements, maintain balance, and learn motor skills.

Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.
