"A deep brain stimulator (DBS) device is like a pacemaker for the heart, but the electrodes are placed into the brain. DBS helps in neurological disorders by changing the activity of brain cells depending on where the electrodes are placed. In 1973, Yoshio Hosobuchi first performed chronic deep brain stimulation, to treat pain, by implanting electrodes. In 2002, long-term results of pallidal stimulation were reported for Parkinson's disease. Thus, this book discusses how Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, and a few other neurological and psychiatric disorders are treated with DBS"--Provided by publisher.

Brain Stimulation

Deep brain stimulation is a remarkable therapy that has mainstreamed electrical stimulation of the brain for the treatment of neurological dysfunction. To appreciate the mechanisms of deep brain stimulation, we need to understand the excitability of neural tissue. Here, we survey the pertinent principles of electrical excitation in the brain.

Transcranial Brain Stimulation

Since the discovery of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), these non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques have been used to investigate the state of cortical excitability, and the excitability of the cortico-cortical and corticospinal pathways. In addition, these techniques have been found to induce neuroplasticity—a significant

Transcranial Brain Stimulation for Treatment of Psychiatric Disorders

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was introduced in the mid 1980s in clinical neurophysiology to study the central motor pathways. Research has been exponentially increased since, and many different methods for brain stimulation have been considered during the last decade. This publication focuses on transcranially applied, non- or low-invasive interventions not
