  • Movement disorders

    Pathophysiology:
    Movement disorders are a group of diseases and syndromes affecting the ability to produce and control movement. Sensory information provides critical input on the current position and velocity of body parts, and spinal nerve cells (neurons) help prevent opposing muscle groups from contracting at the same time. To understand how movement disorders occur, it is helpful to consider a normal voluntary movement, such as reaching to touch a nearby object with the right index finger.

    Statistics:
    One hundred forty-seven patients were included (49.7% female). The mean age of the sample was 62.1 ± 11.7 years, the mean age at diagnosis was 55.8 ± 12.3 and the mean duration of the disease was 6.3 ± 5 years. A total of 49 (33.3%) patients were diagnosed with current depression. Depressed patients also scored higher in the NMSQuest even when depression/anxiety items were excluded.

    Treatment:
    Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical technique which is used for the treatment of Movement disorders in which an electrode (an uninsulated wire) is placed in the subcortical (below the surface) structures of the brain. This electrode is connected to a stimulator (a battery) usually placed near the collarbone.

    Major Research:
    Studying the use of new brain stimulation devices and new techniques for DBS insertion. The movement disorders group has defined the technical approach to microelectode-guided DBS implantation for dystonia, resulting in the first American publication on this technique. Another current investigational protocol is examining the use of interventional MRI during DBS, and surgery is performed within an MRI scanner to provide high-quality images of the brain.
