Parkinson's disease is characterized by extra-pyramidal symptoms as well as digestive involvement with gastrointestinal motility (GI) impairment. Deep brain stimulation has been recently developed as a successful treatment for extrapyramidal symptoms. In addition, preliminary reports suggest that this therapy might be successful to relieve GI symptoms as well. The aim of this study is therefore to assess the effect of deep brain stimulation on GI voluntary as well as involuntary motility.

The purpose of this study is to identify factors predicting good results in patients treated with deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease. The study includes a comparison of two sur...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the effect of deep brain stimulation in the the globus pallidus (Gpi) and the subthalamic nucleus (STN) on motor, neuropsychological and psychiatri...
We will evaluate the effect of deep brain stimulation on the depression and quality of life in Parkinson’s disease. We aim to compare depression pre-operatively and post-operatively in ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of deep brain stimulation of the nucleus basalis of Meynert (also called the "nbM") at improving memory in Parkinson's...
The purpose of this study is to use an investigational device to record brain activity for 12-24 months following surgical implantation of deep brain stimulation (DBS) systems. The goal of...
It is not clear whether cognitive adverse events can occur after subthalamic nuclei deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease, and the putative mechanisms are poorly understood.
Deep brain stimulation is an essential therapeutic tool in Parkinson's disease.
Performed as one of the major treatments for advanced Parkinson's disease (PD), deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery can induce adverse effects (AEs) on cognition, gait, mood, speech and swallowing, w...
Off state toe dystonia (TD) is a symptom frequently encountered in Parkinson's disease (PD), but little is known about its evolution after subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS).
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) improves motor symptoms of Parkinson disease (PD). However, motor outcomes can be variable, perhaps due to inconsistent positioning of the...
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.
Proteins associated with sporadic or familial cases of PARKINSON DISEASE.
A condition caused by the neurotoxin MPTP which causes selective destruction of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. Clinical features include irreversible parkinsonian signs including rigidity and bradykinesia (PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY). MPTP toxicity is also used as an animal model for the study of PARKINSON DISEASE. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1072; Neurology 1986 Feb;36(2):250-8)
A group of disorders which feature impaired motor control characterized by bradykinesia, MUSCLE RIGIDITY; TREMOR; and postural instability. Parkinsonian diseases are generally divided into primary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE), secondary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY) and inherited forms. These conditions are associated with dysfunction of dopaminergic or closely related motor integration neuronal pathways in the BASAL GANGLIA.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
