Research Focus

  • Pathophysiology of movement disorders (Parkinson's disease, dystonia)
  • Action mechanism of deep brain stimulation (invasive recording from the human basal ganglia and
  • use of deep brain stimulation as a lesion model)
  • Clinical studies: deep brain stimulation for movement disorders
  • Functional role of neuronal oscillatory activity of the human basal ganglia
  • Invasive recordings from human basal ganglia: multiunit activity and local field potentials, EEG,
  • and transcranial magnetic stimulation
