Neurotransmitter Measurements Using Wireless Instantaneous Neurotransmitter Concentration System (WINCS) During Deep Brain Stimulation Neurosurgery
Trial status: Open for Enrollment
Why is this study being done?
In this study, the investigators will monitor extracellular neurotransmitter levels using a probe that is able to perform real time electrochemical detection during deep brain stimulation surgery. The overall question this study is designed to answer is: Are there neurotransmitters released during deep brain stimulation?
Who is eligible to participate?
- adult Patients with medically intractable Essential Tremor, Parkinson's Disease, and Dystonia who have been approved for DBS surgery by the interdisciplinary Mayo DBS committee.
- pregnant patients,
- children (age less than 18), and
- any patients identified as unsuitable for these protocol by the Mayo DBS committee.
