    Abstract

    Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the Subthalamic Nucleus (STN) is widely used in advanced stages of Parkinson's disease(PD) and has proven to be an effective treatment of the various motor symptoms. The therapy involves implanting a lead consisting of multiple electrodes in the STN through which continues high frequency electric pulses are delivered. The clinical outcome highly depends on the location of the electrodes within the STN. However, despite careful planning
