Deep Brain Stimulation
How does it work? Why do we care? • Help to improve current applications – Have we perfected this technique?
• Aid the development of new applications • Provide the rationale for design of new technology – Different disease states may require different targets – Different targets require different lead shapes – This is not a “one size fits all” technology

Early Hypothesis for DBS Mechanism • Based on “Rate” hypothesis of Parkinson’s disease, i.e. motor symptoms occur as a result of excessive activity in the STN and GPi • Deep brain stimulation simulates a lesion – Behavioral effects of lesion same as stimulation – Early studies in anesthetized rats demonstrated decrease activity in the entopeduncular nucleus (GPi analogue in monkeys) after STN stimulation (Benazzouz and Hallett 2000) – Studies in humans undergoing implantation demonstrated a reduction of neuronal activity at the site of stimulation (Benazzouz and Hallett 2000; Dostrovsky et al.2000)
• Deep Brain stimulation improves clinical symptoms by suppressing output from the stimulated structure

Conclusion • Net effect at effective stimulation parameters is activation of output from the stimulated structure • Pattern is changed from irregular bursty to one that is more regular and time locked to the stimulus • Shift in oscillatory activity to higher frequencies • Informational content of the signal is altered removing interference from subcortical structures allowing cortical areas to function more normally
Conclusion • Re-evaluation of models of movement disorders and incorporation of changes in pattern of neuronal activity – Pattern/regularity – Oscillatory activity – Synchronization – Changes in network dynamics » Informational content of the network is altered » Distribution of changes across populations of neurons
Future Studies • Multiunit recording across structures to assess population and network dynamics • Determine the relationship of changes in network dynamic to the development motor symptoms • Determine the effect of changing stimulation parameters on neuronal and network function • Define the relationship of these changes to changes in clinical symptomatology • Translate our understanding of DBS for movement disorders to other nervous system disorders
