Objective: The globus pallidus internus (GPi) has been established as the target of choice for deep brain stimulation (DBS) in patients with primary forms of dystonia. For myoclonus-dystonia, the GPi is also the most frequently chosen target. In earlier studies, the nucleus ventralis intermedius thalami[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
