What research is being done?

Research funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), a part of the National institutes of Health (NIH), on brain circuitry was critical to the development of DBS. Researchers are continuing to study DBS and to develop ways of improving it. Researchers are monitoring the progress of participants over a two-year period who receive DBS for either PD, essential tremor, or dystonia. Participants will have their placement evaluated and their neurostimulator programmed as needed. Other NINDS researchers are collecting data on the physiology and effectiveness of DBS therapy and motor and cognitive function in people with either PD, dystonia. or essential tremor who do not respond to other treatment. Additional NINDS-supported research seeks to develop improved implantable pulse generators and new devices to better understand and optimize the effects of neurostimulation.
