    Abstract

    Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in subthalamic nucleus (STN) has substantially improved the suppression of symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, a quantitative understanding of the high-frequency stimulation opn the neuronal elements surrounding the electrode and the resulting effects for the different symptoms for upper and lower extremities is missing. The aim of the study is to investigate if there is a somatotopic organisation of the STN.
