Objective: To demonstrate the feasibility of a precise delineation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) in surgery for Parkinson’s disease (PD) under general anesthesia (GA) with the aid of microelectrode-recordings and to characterize the associated changes in neural activity in the STN and adjacent[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
