Correlation between theta/beta oscillations and Parkinson’s tremors

Takeaway

  • Multielectrode-spiking activity (theta/beta oscillations) in the subthalamic nucleus distinguishes resting tremor from the other Parkinsonian motor signs and strongly correlates with its severity.

Why this matters

    The pathophysiology of tremors in Parkinson’s disease (PD) is not well understood, even though it is a defining feature of the disease.
