Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep Brain Stimulation

 

In Deep Brain Stimulation electrodes are implemented within certain areas of the brain. The electrical impulses produced by these electrodes regulate abnormal impulses.

The amount of stimulation in deep brain stimulation is controlled by a pacemaker-like device placed under the skin in the upper chest. A wire that travels under the skin connects this device to the electrodes in the brain.

Deep Brain Stimulation is used to treat a number of neurological conditions, such as:

  • Essential tremor
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Dystonia
  • Epilepsy
  • Tourette syndrome
  • Chronic pain
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

 

 

 

Possible side effects of stimulation

  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Muscle tightness of the face or arm
  • Speech problems
  • Balance problems
  • Lightheadedness
  • Unwanted mood changes, such as mania and depression
