Scientific Abstract

Developments in functional neurosurgery for movement disorders and recent advances in electrophysiological techniques have allowed important insights into the role of oscillations in corticobasal ganglia circuits, both in health and in neurological disease states. Here we review recent developments in our understanding of how abnormally synchronized oscillatory activity within the corticobasal ganglia loop may play a key role in the pathophysiology of cognitive and motor phenotypes in Parkinson's disease.
