Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is increasingly used for the treatment of patients with severe Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, but the technique and science behind it is still poorly understood by most clinicians. This book is intended to provide an overview of the use of deep brain stimulation for movement disorders and provide an introduction to the developing arena of DBS for psychiatric disease. The first part of the book covers the varying surgical techniquesinvolved in implanting electrodes into various deep nuclei within the brain.
