Deep brain stimulation modulates pallidal and subthalamic neural oscillations in Tourette's syndrome

ConclusionThe high beta and gamma oscillations in GPi restored after GPi ‐DBS, but not STN‐DBS. High beta and gamma oscillations may have physiological function in resisting tics in TS. The cortex compensation effect might be interfered by the STN‐DBS due to the influence on the hyper‐direct pathway but not GPi‐DBS.

We present a neurobiologically plausible elaboration of an existing schema-based cognitive model of action selection in which the basal ganglia implements an activation-based selection process that mediates between assumed cortical representations of rule-based schemas. More specifically, the model employs a network of basal ganglia units with computations performed by individual BG nuclei, embedded in a corticothalamic loop that disinhibits schemas according to the received feedback. We provide bridging assumptions for linking the operation of the model with ERP components that describe the error-related negativity (ERN) ...

De Leonardis, Sage Bates, Nisha JagannathanAbstractTreatment ambivalence is commonly associated with hoarding disorder (HD), representing a public health challenge. One possible innovative approach to reducing problematic treatment ambivalence leverages virtual reality (VR) technology as a motivational strategy. For this pilot study, 23 adults with HD were immersed in a VR environment depicting rooms in their own homes without exi...

The aim of this prospective controlled study was to evaluate the long-term impact of STN-DBS on motor disabilities and cognitive impairment in PD pati...

The literature reviewed to date describes how alterations in the thalamic reticular nucleus affect several functions that regulated brain rhythms and provokes symptoms of many disorders. The observations as the basis for the renewed interest in the thalamic reticular nucleus in...
