    Abstract : BackgroundParkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases in Europe. Besides motor dysfunction, PD is characterized by several non-motor and secondary motor features, such as weight change, sialorrhea, constipation and swallowing problems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Balance performance in people with Parkinson’s disease. Effects of subthalamic Deep Brain Stimulation

    Author : Maria H Nilsson; Aktivt och hälsosamt åldrande; []
    Keywords : Parkinson s disease; Deep Brain Stimulation; subthalamic nucleus; balance; falls.; fear of falling;

    Abstract : The overall aims of this work were to investigate if Deep Brain Stimulation in the subthalamic nuclei (STN) affected balance, fear of falling and falls in people with Parkinson's disease. The effect of STN stimulation alone was investigated in Papers I, II and III. READ MORE

  5. 5. Deep brain stimulation of the posterior subthalamic area in the treatment of movement disorders
