Authors: Beszłej JA, Wieczorek T, Kobyłko A, Piotrowski P, Siwicki D, Weiser A, Fila-Witecka K, Rymaszewska J, Tabakow P Abstract Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a treatment method that is currently getting more and more attention from psychiatrists. It has proven to be efficacious and safe in the treatment of neurological disorders, mainly Parkinson's disease (PD), dystonia and essential tremor. DBS has very often contributed to successful treatment in cases that had proved resistant to all other methods of treatment. Nowadays treatment-resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is the main psychiatric indica...

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.

The prevalence of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and obsessive and compulsive symptoms (OCS) is unclear both in the elderly and in people with Parkinson's disease (PD). Although the typical age of onset for OCD is around age 20 there is evidence for a second peak later in life at ages 65+.1 In PD, a disease of aging, studies have produced mixed results regarding an association with OCD and OCS.2 In this issue, Monaco et al.3 found additional evidence for this second peak in that elderly whether healthy or suffering from Parkinson's disease had an unexpectedly high percentage of OCS.

CONCLUSIONS: Subclinical OCS were present at a high percentage in both PD patients and comparison group. The OCS phenotype in PD may present differently, as hoarding was more common in PD patients. PMID: 31558346 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: DBS of subthalamic nucleus should be seen as the most hazardous place of implantation. As a result there is a strong need of "gold standards" based on the connectivity research and closer cooperation of scientists and clinicians. PMID: 31452489 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Parkinson disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by abnormalities in movement, behavior, cognition, and emotion. Both the disease itself and its treatment, consisting of dopaminergic replacement therapy, can cause psychiatric disorders.

Abstract Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has evolved considerably over the past 4 decades. Although it has primarily been used to treat movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia, recently it has been approved to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder and epilepsy. Novel potential indications in both neurological and psychiatric disorders are undergoing active study. There have been significant advances in DBS technology, including preoperative and intraoperative imaging, surgical approaches and techniques, and device improvements. In addition to providing significant clinical benefit...

Authors: Berardelli I, Belvisi D, Pasquini M, Fabbrini A, Petrini F, Fabbrini G Abstract Introduction: reviewed studies that assessed the treatment of psychiatric disturbances in Parkinson's disease and atypical parkinsonisms. Neuropsychiatric disturbances in these conditions are frequent and have a profound impact on quality of life of patients and of their caregivers. It is therefore important to be familiar with the appropriate pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for treating these disorders.

In conclusion, our study demonstrates that TS patients manifest “trait” abnormalities in the timing of sequential motor tasks, which are in keeping with the continuation phase of time processing, likely controlled by the sensorimotor loop of the cortico-basal ganglia network. We also show that the abnormal lateralization of fine motor control, previously reported in the context of the structural sequencing of fine motor tasks, extends also to motor timing accuracy. Finally, we highlight SMA connectivity as a potentially pivotal neural substrate of adaptive compensation of motor timing deficits in fine manual ta...
