Abstract

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is increasingly used for the treatment of patients with severe Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, but the technique and science behind it is still poorly understood by most clinicians. This resource is intended to provide an overview of the use of deep brain stimulation for movement disorders and provide an introduction to the developing arena of DBS for psychiatric disease.
