Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) During Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) to Treat Parkinson's Disease
About this study
This study is investigating the usefulness of using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to monitor brain activation during deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's Disease. The study may determine the relationship between patterns of brain activation and therapeutic outcome and/or side effects.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate.
