    Decreased neuronal activity and altered firing patterns in the globus pallidus have been commonly observed in primary dystonia. Intraoperative neuronal recording in a patient with off-period dystonia revealed that the mean firing rates were considerably low in both the internal and external...

    Objective: There is some debate about the effects of pallidal deep brain stimulation (DBS) or lesioning on secondary dystonia. We applied a multimodal method to maximize the treatment effects of deep brain stimulation in patients with secondary dystonia. Methods: Between March 2003 and January...

    Background: Dystonia has been treated well using deep brain stimulation at the globus pallidus internus (GPi DBS). Dystonia can be categorized as two basic types of movement, phasic-type and tonic-type. Cervical dystonia is the most common type of focal dystonia, and sequential differences in...

    Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the globus pallidus internus (GPi) is an established treatment in patients with severe dystonia. However, factors predicting outcome are largely unknown and motor improvement in DYT6 patients after DBS has been reported to be poorer as compared to, e.g., DYT1...

    Globus pallidus involvement is a well-known magnetic resonance (MR) imaging finding of acute kernicterus. However, it is not clear how early the involvement of globus pallidus occurs and whether or not it is seen in every case. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the globus pallidus involvement...

    We report two patients, in whom stuttering evolved as an adverse effect of pallidal deep brain stimulation for treating dystonia. Speech dysfluency was observed under conditions that optimally suppressed dystonic symptoms without inducing other extrinsic stimulation effects. This emphasizes a...
