Mapping dysfunctional circuits in the frontal cortex using deep brain stimulation (DBS) published in Nature Neuroscience

In a massive collaborative effort involving 39 coauthors from 16 institutions, we demonstrate the use of deep brain stimulation to map dysfunctional circuits associated with brain disorders. We identified optimal networks targeting the frontal cortex that could be used for treating dystonia, Parkinson’s disease, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and Tourette syndrome. Based on this research
