DBS and Electrical Neuro-Network Modulation to Treat Neurological Disorders

Amanda Thompson et al. Int Rev Neurobiol. .

Abstract

The use of neuromodulatory techniques in the treatment of neurological disorders is expanding and now includes devices targeting the motor cortex, basal ganglia, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system, and autonomic nervous system. In this chapter, we review and discuss the current and past literature as well as review indications for each of these devices in the ongoing management of many common neurological diseases including chronic pain, Parkinson's disease, tremor, dystonia, and epilepsy. We also discuss and update mechanisms of deep brain stimulation and electrical neuro-network modulation.
