This important book discusses today's most current and cutting-edge applications of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). The book begins with reviews of the functional anatomy and physiology of motor and nonmotor aspects of the basal ganglia and their connections which underlie the application of DBS to neurological and psychiatric disorders. This is followed by proposed mechanisms of action of DBS based on functional neuroimaging and neurophysiologic studies in animals and man.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This excellent and comprehensive new book covers the rapidly growing use of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. . Written and edited by a group of clinician-researchers in the field, this book will be extremely useful for clinicians wishing to learn about this important new tool. . The intended audience includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists/behavioral neurologists, and neuropsychologists. Any clinician or researcher in this field would benefit from reading this valuable book. . I highly recommend it." (Michael J. Schrift, Doody's Review Service, October, 2008)
